Rob Gilchrist originally established nzscanners.org.nz, a 'website for serious radio scanners and scanners in New Zealand'. He posted messages under one of his online names 'zeroalpha'. He has also been using the names 'balaclava' and 'anarchist'.
The site includes a chatroom and a forum. The site says that it has over 20,000 registered members.
However it appears Gilchrist has had no involvement with this site for several years and that it was merely a short-term 'business front' . The domain name is now registered to someone else who has no connection to Gilchrist.
The domain nzscanners.co.nz, which was established for the business, no longer exists.
Gilchrist however does own the company NZ Scanners Ltd, registered in January 2005. He is the only shareholder.
The company address is a post box number.
Meanwhile other serious allegations have been swirling around Gilchrist and because they have not been substantiated I'm choosing not to publish them here for the moment. I do note though that Gilchrist was expelled from the Anti-Vivisection Society in 2002.
As well as spying on the Workers Party, Green MP Keith Locke today said that Gilchrist had been passing Green Party information on to the Special Investigation Group and his 'handlers' Detective Peter Gilroy and Detective Sergeant John Sjoberg.
