The Ocean Tower South Padre Island building implosion was today:
151.625 M [67.0] handling parking, this might be an SPI Convention Center frequency or just an itinerant used by a parking/security contractor
157.15 BM [CSQ] US Coast Guard Station South Padre Island (Marine Ch. 23A, appear to be using digital encryption in addition to analog voice)
469.5 M [d 331] Controlled Demolition, Inc. (CDI) Ch. 1 Primary
469.55 M [d 331] Controlled Demolition, Inc. (CDI) Ch. 2

A number of South Padre Island talkgroups were active with police, fire, public works, etc. on the Cameron County (Port Isabel) system.

Also, unrelated federal stuff:
162.875 RM [d 031] Border Patrol
163.675 RM [d 031] Border Patrol
165.2375 RM [100.0] CBP Net 1
169.45 RM [100.0] CBP Net 2
170.7 RM [d 023] suspect this is ICE
416.4875 F [173.8] Remote Link for 163.675 [d 031]

Some other miscellaneous updates are already in the RR database.

I live close to spi and i had to work that day. Did you took any pictures or video of the Ocean tower? I took my radio and was listening to CCSO/and SPI police on my radio. It was fun listening to them that day. I saw that you posted 163.6750 DC 627 on the database under CC, is that correct. I have never heard that frequency with that tone.

al95,
One of the local stations here in the DFW Metro area posted a link for video of the implosion. The first link is their page, the second is the video's link on You Tube, where there are several other versions of the video as well from other people.

I only got one hit on it in Brownsville; it's possible that I misread the tone off the display. If you're sure it's a mistake then let me know and I'll take care of it.

I heard it last night. They only used it once an a while I think. It is still working loud and clear.
