The broadcast industry in Mexico has developed in an amazing way, from the
Border Blaster stations along the US border to the Spanish language television
networks which are beamed around the world.

Mexican Broadcast History:
history of Guadalajara, Mexico Broadcasting - by Francisco de Jesus Aceves
on Mexican Radio in WWII - by Jose Luis Ortiz Garza
TV Station in Mexico - by Francisco Hernandez Lomeli
Translation by Joe Creason
Mexican stations are regulated by the SCT, which seems to be somewhat
like the US Dept of Transportation.
The ITU originally assigned the call letter blocks to Mexico.
Today, Mexican AM and VHF-TV stations use call letters beginning with
XE--- (as do a few "grandfathered" FMs); in general, FM and UHF-TV
stations use XH---. The suffix FM or TV is not mandatory.
- Some are three letter calls: XEX or XEW.
- Some are four letter calls: XELO.
- Some are five letter calls: XETRA, XHJUB-TV
- A few are six letter calls: XEJAZZ, XHHUPN (TV)
