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 McAllen Sector.
It is estimated that un-encrypted radio traffic comprises less than 30% of the total activity for any given time.

— Note:  Most of the activity where GPS coordinates are indicated occurred in remote areas at considerable distances north of the border. Activity along
the border/ Rio Grande River is generally referenced using landmarks familiar to agents and pilots (levys, roads, pumps, cane fields) instead of using
GPS coordintates.  Most of the larger size groups were detected at the border/Rio Grande River…. having just crossed to the US side or staging on the Mexican  side to come across.
