Carriers are the methods used to enciphered and deliver signals.
Carrier specifications include spectrum, wavelength, frequency,
and how the signal is enciphered and how the cipher acts on
the brain. Carriers are named after the groups who developed
them and/or use them.
MindGuard uses modular carrier files so you can always be sure to
have the most current level of protection. Just drop new carriers
into the carrier directory, or replace old
versions with new ones. MindGuard will automatically recognize and
install them. If you install new modules while MindGuard is running,
make sure you click the Known Carriers button above the the
Carrier List to re/install the modules.
The currently installed modules are displayed in a Carrier List
in the upper-left side of the main window.
Carrier modules included with MindGuard:
The actual module files have names that follow the form
*.carrier. These usually have a smaller name than the carrier
they detect (ie. "UN Belgian Subset" is belgian.carrier) since
all relevant information is stored inside the file (which is an
IFF-PSYC file format.)
