Export recent tower list?

Is there a way to forensically backup recent cell tower list?
I believe I was just the victim of an unlawful stingray probe at a bona fide First Amendment activism event.
I would like to back this up and maintain admissibility of evidence for standing and FOIA corroboration purposes. Any advice?
I have root but I'm novice at best.

    Simple app that lets you see what locations have been cached on your android device.
    You can take a look at them in a list (text) and on map.

    Root is required to read and delete the location cache!

    Block Cache will change permissions on the file so the LocationProvider can't write the files back to disk.

    FAQ
    Can I block the cache without root?
    Yes, disable "Use wireless networks" under "Location & Security settings"
    But you have to live with a slower location lock on maps.

    Showing Map does not work (Force close)?
    You should update your ROM/GApps
    Your device has a buggy Google Maps Library installed

    This app just reports no data found.
    Yet if I run http://market.android.com/details?id=com.bafflesoft.locationcache.viewer it reports data as expected. Guess this app still has a few issues.

    One point worth mentioning is that your cell provider already has a good record of your movements.
