Historic Border Patrol Badge Artifact

Southern Barrier, Part 5

As we move eastwards along the U.S. / Mexico border we have the Primary barrier topped with an additional climb proof fence. The odd building just beyond the barrier — to the south — is a former Soviet KGB lookout tower used to observe U.S. Navy ships 10 miles to the north in San Diego bay and also used to monitor the borderline itself for at least five miles east and west. The KGB building has a far better view of the border than does the Border Patrol. What today’s Russian spy agency — the FSB — is doing with the equipment behind those airport control tower windows is anybody’s guess.

Odd things still go on here. If you note the position of the innocent satellite TV antenna in the image above and compare it to the position of that same antenna in the image below you can see that it can track things, somewhere.
