What about contesting as XE1/KF7P ?  (Despite the long call...)

We in the USA (at least in business and the government) now want to  allow 
Mexicans to operate big semi-trailer trucks in the USA, but Americans  can't 
operate an SSB transceiver in Mexico in a ham radio contest?  What's  wrong 
with this picture?

To Hector, Ramon, and the other XE hams, this is not an attack on you. It  
is a comment about the government(s) involved.

Hi   Contesters

In support  to  Ramon's  information, will  like to share the Mexican Ham 
Law translated  to English  by   George Warren XE1/N9VIU
you ca find here   http://www.qsl.net/oh2mcn/xelawen.pdf

Will like to explain that CoFeTel  (SCT)  use a guide where explain to them 
the permits and others  Special  event call need to be issued, but that is
internal   use  and is how they work.

Will like to   headlight   the following articles :
Art. 3      The rights and obligations germane to the licence are personal 
not  transferable.
--- means only the person in the certificate can  use it, NO  Mexican can 
borrow "loan" "Rent" his call to other  person  or use it like CLUB 

Art. 21  Related to  reciprocal permits, the one the visitor do not like  
or like 

Now here is the information,  there is no more   doubts, very clear, more 
specific ask us and with pleasure will  
provide the info or where you can ask to get a real answer.

As  Mexican our law is very old, not friendly and very  hard to deal,  a  
lot of 
Mexican hams want to make a improvement in our law
not only make  changes, we need a better law that allow the ham population 
Mexico to  grow, not to die only,  we are now  much less that 4000 hams
in  all Mexico with license, active hams much less.

One of the things we  want to change for good is the reciprocal permit, but 
have no  support from the visitors and the contest sponsors,  they don't  
they operate where they want  the contest they like in the   way  his idea 
correct call  they think is correct  or  the call they like   with no 
permit and 
the contest   sponsor accept the log and later they are the NEW record from 
Mexico, the  sponsor do not care  for permits.
ARRL  and CQ  Magazine  What is the fear to ask for permits ?    

With  this support to the Mexicans will be difficult  to them  deal with  
and make it easy  to others operate from Mexico  LEGALLY.

A lot of  contesters think that is not big deal  be  Legal in  Banana 
their log  will be fine and maybe WIN  a CONTEST!!!  and they
continue using his  "compadre station and  his call to support his club 
score and 
give the mult", nobody will  notice.

Sorry but  Mexico is not Banana Republic and in my case,  the one who  
with NO permit or PIRATE  is the same thing  that Cheat,   I don't like 

The contest sponsor  do not like cheaters but support Illegal operations as 
for contest,  and also  will keep the  RECORDS for ever in his web 
XE2/W5??? etc etc)

After become enemy of a few and  hated for  others, just my point of view, 
because I follow rules even if I don't like  at all, just want the others 
follow the rules  because is the  way to play.
