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.

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
--- 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
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
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
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
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.
