Has anybody been caught doing this in bridge?

There was a story last week in the chess world about GM Tkachiev’s exploration of a cheating possibility.

In essence he conducted a test where he had a tiny receiver in his ear hooked up to a person who was watching live transmission on a computer. He only had to be given a couple of suggestions in his match against a fellow GM to be an easy winner.

You can check out the chess version here.

It that made me wonder if the same thing has been done in bridge – presumably it would be just as simple. Has anybody been caught? Is there a way of stopping it other than by making the transmission not live? In general are sophisticated technological ways of cheating in bridge as rife as they seem to be in chess?

Your thoughts are appreciated!
