The XHAVR-FM tower is hiding
Chasing after an elusive radio tower in Veracruz, that is currently a phantom tower. None other than that belonging to 89.1 XHAVR *in* Alvarado. But is it really in Alvarado?
Their *modificación de concesión* document is found here
The IFT says the tower coordinates are on the Antón Lizardo Highway, which runs from Boca del Río to Antón Lizardo, which is about a 25 km stretch. Its suppose to be on the Rancho el Tepeyac. I wore Google out trying to find that. You'll find the name Tepeyac all around México, but I did not find a Rancho by that name in that area. The IFT also says the tower is at KM 3.5 on the highway.
I took a drive on Google Maps, headed S-SE out of Boca del Río (150) and decided to start directly in front of the Superama. I didn't go very far when I found this KM marker...
I went a bit further and didn't find the 4 KM marker. I was scanning the country side looking for anything that looks like radio towers. Further down 150 I saw two towers (maybe at 5 KM) coming up on the right. They look like cell towers.
My pursuit continues. If Raymie ever finds it, I hope he will post the news here.
