Hello Texans,

A couple weeks ago I asked for help with my drive to Brownsville from Houston and got some good info. I thought I post this for anyone taking US-77 South and what you will encounter. I'm was being safe using Waze/Uniden R1 ver. 1.37 on HWY with KA seg 2,4,5,6,8, K Narrow, X Off, K/Ka Pop Off, K Filter On, Ka Filter/TSF Off. I will being going back and forth for a month for work so I will update as I see more encounters. I need to get a dashcam to keep up with all saves and counties and to post for general entertainment.

Very few encounters in Brownsville itself but it was mostly 34.7 alerts on R1 but no visual. A lot of border patrol in the city.

Leaving Harlingen on US-77 after the border checkpoint you will see Kenedy County with a brown Dodge Pickup shooting K Band 24.110. Hiding in the middle between the trees and bushes so be careful. My rabbit got caught so I was saved.

Before Oden, Texas you will see another brown Dodge Pickup with Woodstock County shooting K Band 24.113. So I never thought I would see pickup truck LEO plus K Band so it was an eye opening experience.

Refugio Texas has local shooting 33.8 and whole town is 35mph. DPS before and after the town are hiding shooting 34.7. BE CAREFUL. I found 2 K band speed signs on the side of the road outside of Refugio. So everything about reaching Refugio is annoying!

DPS shooting 34.7 everywhere in between Houston and Brownsville some C/O but alot of I/O shots that the R1 gave me heads up on.

Outside of Houston with Wharton country on US-59 shooting 34.7 I/O Waze helped

All the Weigh Stations have DPS hiding and some shooting 34.7 I/O shots waze has them marked but sometimes no alert on R1.

Most of the encounter were on the parts of the freeway that dropped below 55mph. Waze helped on a few but not all.

Hope this helps someone with specifics about reaching Brownsville from Houston.
