Default San Antonio Riverwalk area

Here are some logs from the San Antonio Riverwalk area. Confirmed finds are already updated in the RR database.

Notable:
464.375 R [d 423] Centro San Antonio - Ambassadors/Maintenance (no license found)
462.825 S [CSQ] The Alamo - Voice Paging (used to activate the public address system)
466.35 M [71.9] The Alamo - Security (not using a repeater)
461.35 M [71.9] The Alamo - Operations (not used much)
415.7125 S [100.0] probably a hotel and probably intermod but this is worth further investigation
154.95 S [n 162] DPS dispatcher-only multicast?

Others:
469.2625 M [225.7] radio technicians talking about how San Antonio did it wrong and should have done P25 like Austin
464.6 R [d 115] hotel (no license found)
464.325 [d 031] hotel
154.515 M [67.0] hotel valet
467.85 M [d 165] movie theater?
467.85 M [d 546] valet
466.8375 M [d 054] hospital? "ultrasound"
457.025 M [162.2] valet

There was a ton of radio activity in the downtown Riverwalk area with almost every business using a radio but most very difficult to identify.

DPS base station licenses on 154.95 are appearing in some areas now.
According to the state interop plan it is supposed have 156.7 PL.

Are you sure it wasn't the adjacent channel 154.9425? That would be the input to 159.0975 repeaters and be P25 with that NAC.

But, if San Antonio, had taken their $20M share of the $2.9B in federal grant radio upgrade money given out
after Sept 11, 2001 meant to help cure Interop problems identified within public safety systems across the USA,
and spent it towards P25 Digital in the 1st place, then how in the world would our city have gotten the chance
to first blow $184M on their No-Voice Digital TRS system that they will now have to dump by around 2015/2016 ?

See there, our powers that be did what was good for the local economy - paids for more goods and services

ps ~ I always wondered if the feds ever called our SAPD radio folks in charge of the buying decision back then
on the carpet for NOT spending the money in the direction it was earmarked for ie ... "P25 Interoperability" ?
Hmm, I wonder if anybody even ever got their hand so much as slapped ? Or is that just politics as usual ?

Hello Eric, your doing a GREat job documenting these many things in our downtown area !
So, are you in town all week on business, pleasure or just to spy on those "radio techs"

The last time I was downtown at the Rivercenter Mall I noticed that they left their listed FM freqs.
I used signal stalker and ID'd their traffic as Mall Security using NXDN96 using the DSD program.

464.92500 RM 025 DPL RCMall Maint Rivercenter Mall - Mall Operations/Housekeeping/Parking FM
should be listed as Depreciated until their newer NXDN frequency can be nailed down.

461.60000 RM 243 DPL RCMall Sec Rivercenter Mall - Mall Security FM Security (Old Freq Info)
(451.9875) RM RCMall Sec - Rivercenter Mall Security Patrols - NXDN - Security (New NexEDGE)
New Rivercenter Mall II shows FCC Lic WQRA221 40W FB2C (Also freq for Microsoft DataCenter Passport TRS)


Hey extra credit for you if you solve these active FCC license renewals for the City of San Antonio ( or COSA )
COSA-Govt-5Watt 155.602500 FM NAC? Search 54 Hits in less than a week
COSA-Govt-5Watt 158.857500 FM Search 708 Hits in less that a week


ps ~ Have you picked up the Towers of the America Ops on 467.7625 FM 74.4 PL ?

btw ~ The Alamo Security is handled by "Alamo Rangers" on 466.3500 ~ 71.9 PL (was 461.3500 Rptr)

I guess it was 154.9425 actually. My radios aren't able to distinguish the 7.5 kHz splits cleanly.
