There are scripts that will allow you to capture packets from all sources within range, regardless of the ssid being hidden or not.
hmm I thought without broadcasting your SSID they would need to know it, otherwise they couldn't scan it. Of course you have those sniffing programs, but this will stop the script-kiddies from cracking it since they only know how to push a button.
What matters is obtaining a handshake, and if its not a public network, that can take days. Pray for a power outage.
