NEW ! Daily "Border Audio"  Archives now up on   (< click on icon ) 

11/01/13 - 0000~2400hrs - 18 Groups, 130 Bodies - Ground agents report large groups...No High Flyer Air Support

5 minutes of condensed audio  (click on link below)  Note change to MP3 audio format 


Groups of:  2,2P,25+,Longarm,20+,2,8,12,1,1,20,3,1,1,2,16,4,5

(P= "46" Drug Packers, A= Armed individuals, ULA= UltraLight, LV= Load Vehicle, B=Bailout, FTY=Failure to Yield)

Significant Events in Audio:

-- There were MANY groups being worked during this 24 hour period where the size of the group could not be determined.

-- Note: Audio clips are comprised of USBP radio traffic  broadcast "in-the-clear" (un-encrypted) from the busy Tucson Sector .
    It is estimated that un-encrypted radio traffic comprises less than 30% of the total activity for any given time period. 

-- Note:  MSC Ground Surveillance Radar and Ground agents detected and reported numerous large group of Illegal Aliens
           during this 24 hour period.  Despite this level of activity, "High Flyer" manned and un-manned aircraft were not available
           for support for the second day in a row.  Had these sophisticated aircraft been available, the number of detections and the  number of apprehensions in the this 24 hour period would have been significantly higher.  Most of the activity was
          on the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation.
