The Papa John's hot air balloon is in the area, trying to get the winds to go over the stadium, with Glendale tower's approval.

Airship 151AB, DirecTV, is now in the area, headed for the stadium.

I need to leave shortly, to get home for dinner.

It was Goodyear. I heard them talk to Glendale tower, and I was right under it, while parked in the Westgate parking lot :)
Finally spotted the Goodyear blimp today over the stadium, being chased by the DirecTV blimp.

The Director of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson was at the stadium this morning with his Secret Service detail. I was trapped in my compound until the motorcade left the area. They were on 165.3750 MHz, USSS CHARLIE.

DPS Metro North, 460.1875 (151.4) is active. I'm not sure if it's Super Bowl or Phoenix Open related or not, but I thought it was noteworthy. It sounds like a possible escort.

The Director of DHS has Secret Service protection? Why not a DHS protective detail?

Update Me?

"DPS Metro North" is not in the database here so I don't have it in my 996T. I'm NOT challenging the info, I hasten to add, simply asking for some background. Is this a new channel assignment? Should it be added to the db?
TIA

The Secret Service is part of DHS. The Department of Homeland Security is an umbrella office & title that covers the various agencies within, including Secret Service.

If someone says they are with "Homeland Security", you should ask which agency...

The Secret Service "is" the DHS protective detail.

Remember, since 2003 "DHS" is simply a parent Department for a series of child-agencies with different (but largely similar and complementary) missions. The Secret Service is the DHS branch entrusted with protection of current and former national leaders.

I suppose that since the USSS protects top executive leaders, it should not be surprising that the USSS would protect their own department head.

460.1875 is a new DPS Freq and we have not positively ID'd it yet. The "DPS North" name comes from a 2009 edition on the Southwest Freq Directory, and is not confirmed yet. The freq only came alive with radio tech activity in late 2014 and now has some special detail radio traffic. We will add to the DB once we confirm the channel name or usage.

I had forgotten that the USSS was now a part of DHS. I was still thinking they were Treasury. Oh, well. Thanks for the reminder.

There was another DPS future use frequency in the same SWFD-10 from 2009. "Metro Southeast Tac". I don't recall the frequency off-hand, and am about to start work, so I can't look it up. I don't think any activity has been seen on it yet. There's a state radio tech, Walter, on the ArizonaScanner group over on Yahoo groups. I don't know how much he can reveal now, but he did confirm at one point that both frequencies were future use.

Thanks for the clarification; I appreciate it. Again, I didn't mean to criticize the DB process or Admins; I guess "should we add it ..." was off-base.

My apologies for not posting this info earlier in the week but theses 14 on 10 off shifts are not providing much computer time. Phx Fire is using K5 for medical responses in the area and in Super Bowl Central and K13 for the administrative issues involved with the standby.

let put every thing we have for freq also i see custom helicopters up check out their freq
CBP Blackhawks are talking to Glendale tower on 121.000, to each other when there's two or more up on 136.375 I think it was, and to other helicopters (such as media) on 123.025.

I don't know who it was, but several days ago, I heard someone on 123.025 tell someone else they were on 123.325. I haven't tried monitoring 123.325 as of yet.
