The mayor of Orihuela City Council Planning, Antonio Zapata (PSOE), has publicly denounced the location and development of the illegal activity of five antennas in Orihuela Costa.

Specifically, Zapata has accused the councilman of New Technologies of the City of Pilar de la Horadada, Josefa Meroño (Pilareña Union) to permit the company tower Satellite installation of such antennas and the development of their business.

According to Zapata, “not known to have been applied for the respective environmental permits for the installation of antennas or authorization of the landowner where is”.

Therefore, and today, as the mayor announced at a press conference, will open the respective disciplinary proceedings.

“The trouble is that public office is the person exercising such illegal activities,” he assured.

A few weeks ago was the very councilor who has already publicly denounced the existence of a trench about six kilometers, apparently illegally, in the same area where such antennas are located.

“I can not understand how a public official of a municipality has moved to the neighboring municipality to dig a trench 6 km, install 5 antennas and mounting a TV which offer content not know why,” said Zapata.

The mayor has asked Orihuela Councillor for New Technologies Pilar de la Horadada to “remove these antennas and approaches to the Planning council to try to regularize them.”

In fact, if this action is not carried out, Zapata has indicated its intention to consider other options driven by the session Orihuela, such as sealing or cessation of emissions, and even brought to the court in such activities.

“I can not consent to distribute content across TV, internet and unaware of what they are,” he concludes.

It was the Planning Department and, specifically, the brigade of urban disciplines which have found such antennas.

This department is expected to begin a thorough inspection to determine the total number of antennas installed in the municipality and leaking municipal control.

On the other hand, this medium has tried to contact the councilor, Josefa Meroño, who, through the press office of the Municipality of Pilar de la Horadada, has refused to make statements on this matter found it in the hands of justice .

Brigade Activities Orihuela Town Planning Department has identified at least five antennas that broadcast television signals or the Internet on the coast and do not have any permit, license or environmental activity. Not that these permits the rejection, is that you never got to ask, and it is unknown how long these repeaters are operating with no record at City Hall.

The Town Planning, Antonio Zapata, the finding made public yesterday and charged inks against Pilareña Union councilor and deputy mayor in Pilar de la Horadada (a few days mayor of New Technologies), Pepa Meroño, being the owner Company “Torresatélite” that claim ownership of the antennas. At the same commodity at the same Meroño blamed for a month after opening a trench four miles along the Orihuela Costa to bury a cable television also illegal.

Zapata was outraged that “someone thought that the term of Orihuela is a virgin, just below the forest, and you can install an unlicensed activity and profit benefits without impact on the municipality.” He added, “I have no interest in going against certain people, but we are talking again Meroño Pepa, how bad is that those exercising these activities is a public official who knows his duties.”

Zapata insisted that “I can not understand how the deputy mayor of a municipality comes into the neighboring municipality to make a trench and put five antennas without permission, mounted a television whose contents do not know if they are legal.”

From Planning has begun for disciplinary and values ​​go to court to file a complaint. In parallel, we are studying how to force the disconnection of these antennas (precintarlas or cut the power supply are some of the options), which are located on private property in buildings Vistamar II in La Regia, El Faro, Orihuela, a workshop and Campoamor Dehesa dealer or mall Pigeon Shooting in Villamartin, according to the mayor.

To install you need the permission of land owners, who now heads the City Council to clarify how long are running (it is possible, he acknowledged, “that the work of installation is required, but activity is still there”).

Meroño as Councilman Orihuela, Urbanism has not contacted to try to regularize the situation of the trench reported for weeks, “not even to apologize.”

Urban will return to drive the antenna ordinance that left the PP slope of the allegations. “We will take it to heart to regulate such matters, because we found five antennas but there will be more throughout the term.” In fact, only been detected by observing the Brigade Activities, created earlier this year by the mayor.

Finally, the councilor Meroño yesterday did not rule on the complaint of Urbanism.

Not quite sure what is going on, bit seems to be a few variations of stories floating around at the moment.


A Torresat customer was told late last week that a power cable had been cut in Mil Palmeras?


Since then we have had phone calls / emails / reports from - La Marina, Torrevieja (nr Carrefour), San Javier, San Cayetano, Torre de La Horredada & La Manga.

It may well be related to the issues originally mentioned - they could also be juggling frequencies, if about to be investigated or even reducing signal strength as this is also likely to be checked for enviromental / health issues.

When working in the Murcia region it was noted that the microwave signal strength was estimates at 20-30 times the legal output - which from a health point of view, if nearby (Microwave) could be potentially harmful. Additionally the transmissions have also been measured over the top of some legal satellite frequencies - which again may indicated a change of frequency if they believe this could be investigated shortly.

At the moment, would not know what to believe as it does seem quite a coincidence that all of these problems seem to be occurring just after the press reported  the further issues of illegal transmission masts? Perhaps a few have been taken offline & they are trying to redirect to best affect.
