• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

A new 300-foot communications tower and radio control building were approved for installation at Hazel Bazemore Park in Northwest Corpus Christi to aid in communications with the Texas Department of Public Safety, Nueces County Commissioner Pct. 3 Oscar Ortiz said.

A DPS tower has been located in the park for 30 years, but this will be a new tower with all the necessary concrete foundations and footings, guy wires and shelters for the protection of the necessary equipment.
The TXDPS currently owns and operates a communications tower and radio control building at the park, but the new tower and building will enhance the city/ county/ RTA 800 Mhz radio system.
Nueces County Department of Homeland Security funds are being used to improve the system, Ortiz said.
Ortiz said the new tower will help with DPS communications in the river bottom area and eastern parts of Nueces County.
A tower surface lease and agreement between the county and state of Texas was also approved for one year with an option to extend the agreement for up to four additional years.
