San Antonio, Texas is not what I would consider an area with a small population as it has 1.3 million people. http://www.city-data.com/city/Texas.html

No, I wouldn't either, but it is (aside from itself) pretty isolated with no large population centers adjacent to it.  In other words, it's a large metropolitan area all by itself.  As I explained in my post, there are areas where population is high but spread out such as in the DC to Boston corridor, and there are areas where you can go for miles and miles and not see a house or business anywhere, such as the midwest.  With the way Texas is with ranches with hundreds of acres being common, I think you could say that San Antonio is a high population area surrounded by emptyness.

  Say want you want about TSA employees, I've been told by one that he thinks it's one notch up from a Wall Mart greeter and two notches up from welfare. He also stated that his TSA training was more difficult than his Greeters job but no where near as difficult as learning the ins and outs of the welfare system to his best benefit.

I think they already have that problem every time they want to use the restroom just like every other cop wannabe.

You can say that about a lot of areas like Denver, Atlanta, Phoenix, Las Vegas, etc.  I don't think it is relevant at all.

It serves to dilute the amount of public service radio users and the co-operation between those users, therefore it is relevant.

No tin foil, but I see every part of the Government ramping up towards having more armed positions and overall becoming something that could all be used together for who knows what.
Having more TSA agents as hams would make it easier to free up the gun toters and also give them better training as far a finding stations who would dare to transmit should Martial Law be invoked.
I don't care for what I see happening with our Government lately, they seem to be more concerned with US citizens than foreign people who would do us bad.

   Something they don't teach in H.S. Civics class: The PRIMARY goal of ANY type of government  ALWAYS HAS been to have COMPLETE control of it's citizens.
