    Default E-skip UFO sighting Ch 2

    Found this unID ch 2 a bit entertaining with an apparent UFO story. There is a logo of sorts (at the 50 sec mark)that I haven't seen before in LL that could be just a program logo.

    "UFO scatter" would sure be a new mode, wouldn't it (written as "Us")? As to the LL, as the logo in UR is that of an XEW, and I see the time as 11:40 or so, maybe the program is "Hoy."

    At one time, XEW had a show on Sunday nights that contained some UFO stories. I think that Sunday night program is now on Galavision or Canal Cinco. Apparently, such fare is popular in Latin America.

    Back in the 1960s I once recall watching an "XEW-2" in the afternoon running a (Laurel and Hardy ?) silent film. Whenever the dialog text screens appeared (in English) they had the dubbed audio in Spanish added (or it might have been done live on the fly by an announcer in the studio!). Well before the days of easy-to-add text subtitling and decades before SAP.

    Pat, when did XEW become a network with many relayers on every channel? XEW continued to use calls on promos, etc into the early 2000s. The XHGC-5, XEQ-9, XHDF-13, and XHIMT-7 calls could still be seen on promos into the late 1990s.

    I've gone through all the tapes, again, and have determined the picture in post #6 was from early July of 1995. It could be the "real" XEW or one of the channel 2 XEW Network relays in operation at that time.

    Ed, thanks for going to the trouble to find the date.

    I checked Wikipedia's Logopedia this morning, and they show a simiar logo - except it has "Galavision" where your's has "XEW TV." (I don't know why Galavision is on that ID.) Like so many flawed articles on Wikipedia, I've found those TV station logo lists to contain erroneous dates and omissions. They had the date correct this time, however: 1994-1995.

    It looks like the Mexico City analogs will leave the air, and those of us who began keeping TV logs after the 1980s will not have any proof that we ever received the real XEW and XHGC-5. After XHTV-4 switched to Foro (f), with many of their programs being relayed on Televisa independents all over Mexico, my confidence is waning that all of those f receptions on channel 4 are actually XHTV-4.

    I am confident that the real XEW and XHGC-5 have been received here many, many times; yet they are NOT in my log.

    Although Mexico City is in ideal Es range for me, I don't like guessing at IDs - especially when a country covers so much territory and contains so many relayers as Mexico. Sometimes I think a number of DXers are under the impression that Mexico is about the same size as Guatemala.

    I found my copy of Doug's 1995 TV database and it shows XEPM and XEWO as relays of XEW-Net on channel 2. It's probably a safe bet there were more.

    Since our conversion to DTV it's all just history for me...

    I'm reminded of one of those Gumball Rally / cross country road race movies where one of the contestants, an Italian, climbs into his Ferrari, rips off the rear-view mirror, throws it out of the car and says, "Whatta issa behinda me issa notta important."

    ... All I'm really concerned with is the next, new, DTV.
