Funny statement, looks like the Mexican governement needs some new 
lawyers. :-)

You get a license in which you can operate according to the Mexican 
license rules with exception of:
- participation in Dx contests.
   So you are allowed to make a 2000 qso's in a contest but not allowed 
to send in a log? And participation in domestic contests and NA only is 
allowed? Or is it that any contest which does not have the word DX in 
its name is allowed?
- special contests.  There is nothing special with contesting so this is 
a useless addition.
- special expeditions. For me travelling to XE to operate hamradio would 
be a special expedition. This permit would be useless.

My wife will like the permit, no radio at all during a holiday. Looks 
like Mexico is going to be in our list of allowed holiday locations.
