More Mexican Cartel Radio Towers Dismantled

An AP story on the discovery of more drug cartel radio towers in Mexico:

Rumor had it that the cartels were being supplied by radio communications dealers in Texas, but I haven't found any information to support that yet.

Another interesting and more detailed story about this has appeared here:

NYC Activity

I'm in New York City and noted a marked increase in radio traffic on known Secret Service and Department of State Diplomatic Security channels this weekend. It is most likely due to the arrival of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, here to speak at the United Nations. Unknown if this radio traffic is related to any other VIPs in for this event. If you in the area, search the VHF & UHF bands and see what pops up...

I now see that the UN General Assembly is gathering this week, as well as the "Global Initiative" with the Clintons happening today. So a true monitoring extraviganza in New York City this week!
