    More IFT-4 stations are starting to round the corner.

    A Facebook page has turned up for XHPTCS-FM 95.5 Tapachula (Grupo Radio Digital dba Sofía Valanci Penagos). This is the first commercial station to be operated by GRD in this market and joins social wolf XHTPC-FM 106.7. It was the only new station won by the Valanci family in this auction.

    XHPTCS, a Class B1 station, will begin programming on Tuesday, November 21. What exactly will be on air is a bit of a mystery. One forum poster says to expect La Mejor, but that would create a very unusual situation as the two MVS franchises would be operated by separate parties. However, this is exactly the case in Villahermosa, where the Exa FM affiliate (XHKV) is owned by OEM and GRD operates the La Mejor station (XHLI/Tab.).

    First on the Mexico Beat: The First Move Out of the Article 90 Reserved Band

    A less earth-shattering set of news, but it's the first of its kind.

    As part of the renewal of its concession, XHACA-FM 106.3 Acapulco will leave its high perch for 96.1 MHz. This dial position was not awarded in IFT-4 (though the winner of both Acapulco stations, GRC, bowed out in that market). XHACA was awarded 106.3 in November 2010, just six and a half years prior to being told to move, but as a B1 allotment was available there, it could move.

    Here's the full decision stating the new frequency and renewal.

    It's not unusual. In Ciudad del Carmen we have Exa (XHIT-99.7 owned by Radiorama) and La Mejor (XHBCC-100.5 owned by Grupo Isla del Carmen).

    It's uncommon but not unusual, I guess. Forgot the Carmen case. Markets like Monclova, Aguascalientes, and Puebla came to mind when I said that.

    A few table scrap articles:

    224 million pesos is the latest large payment made by Grupo Radio Centro. It covers the new IFT-4 stations it picked up, the security deposit for the ones it did not, and station renewals in Mexico City. The payments were likely made with credit sourced from Banco del Bajío, GRC's financier of choice in recent years.

    ———

    It might feel like we just got through with this, but another opening will appear on the IFT Pleno in four months' time. The Evaluation Committee has proposed five names for the IFT and seven people in total to fill the commissioner vacancies at IFT and Cofece (these agencies' vacancies are filled at the same time in the same way) after 26 aspirants took the necessary exam.

    Ramiro Camacho Castillo, Fernando Butler Silva and Georgina Kary Santiago are in the running for both the IFT and Cofece. Sóstenes Díaz González and Luis Raúl Rey Jiménez only qualified for the IFT. Kary Santiago heads the Economic Competition Unit of the IFT, so she'd fit in either agency.

    The list goes to President Peña Nieto for selection and then to the Senate for confirmation.

    ———

    Yarrrrrrrr!

    A new pirate is sailing the radio airwaves in the Tuxtepec area. Radio Papaloapan 87.9 FM signed on Monday. It is being run by Technical Secondary School 236 and is spearheaded by Roberto Álvarez López with support from Section 22 teachers and municipal authorities. Programming will include cultural, educational, and news elements, as well as a children's show made by teachers and students at two elementary schools.

    They are apparently in the process of filing for a concession (the article incorrectly states they're looking for a permit before the SCT — this is not 2005).

    There is a social station in Tuxtepec on 89.9 that has not yet been built (XHTXP-FM).

    ** MEXICO. XHINFO se va de la AM a la FM
    21/10/2017

    https://gruporadioescuchaargentino.w...la-am-a-la-fm/

    La estación XHINFO pagó al Ifetel la tasa para migrar a FM

    La estación de radio cumplió así con uno de los requisitos que establece el regulador de las telecomunicaciones para que pueda obtener el aval para operar en Frecuencia Modulada, tras migrar desde la Amplitud Modulada.

    Resultado de imagen para XEINFO

    A través de un comunicado, la empresa propiedad de la familia Henkel detalló que la nueva estación XHINFO impulsará una nueva dinámica en la radio en México desde FM, en la frecuencia de 105,3 Mhz.

    A mediados de julio de este año, el IFT resolvió la adjudicación de dos estaciones que migraron de AM a FM , otorgando una frecuencia a la Secretaría de Educación Pública y otra, para la empresa XEFAJ SA de CV, concesionaria de la estación XEINFO-AM (GRA blog, Argenntina via DXLD)

    ** MEXICO. Historia y presente de Radio Huaya
    24/10/2017

    https://gruporadioescuchaargentino.w...e-radio-huaya/

    Radio Huaya es una emisora campesina que enlaza a más de mil comunidades de la huasteca, la zona norte de Veracruz, las sierras de Hidalgo, Querétaro y Puebla y el sur de Tamaulipas.

    Resultado de imagen para radio huaya

    En 2006, después de tres décadas de pelear por ese derecho, obtuvo el permiso para transmitir en Frecuencia Modulada y, desde el 105.5, lidera la defensa de los pueblos de la región

    Es la abuela de las radios comunitarias en México. La voz que escucha, como la definió la investigadora Sofía Irene Ortega Simón. La voz campesina, como dice su lema. La radio que cada día, de las 7 de la mañana a las 7 de la noche, acompaña la vida de los habitantes de esta región.

    Desde aquí, lidera la defensa de la identidad, de la cultura y del territorio de los pueblos indígenas y mestizos. Desde aquí, lidera su resistencia al abandono institucional y a un modelo de desarrollo que no beneficia a las comunidades.

    Radio Huayacocotla, o Radio Huaya -como la conocen- es, sobre todo, una herramienta para la educación y para la denuncia social.

    Surgió en la década de los 60, como otras radios populares que se desarrollaron en Latinoamérica junto con movimientos por la justicia y la igualdad. La Compañía de Jesús se ocupó de su operación, que comenzó con un modelo de escuelas radiofónicas para avanzar en la alfabetización de zonas rurales e indígenas. Una década después, los jesuitas optaron por la transformación comunitaria, a través de la sociedad civil.

    Así nació Fomento Cultural y Educativo, la asociación que dirige el proyecto y que desde 1974 libró una batalla doble. Una, utilizando la radio, para la defensa de los derechos de campesinos e indígenas contra la violencia política de los caciques (sobre todo de la Sierra Norte de Veracruz). Y otra jurídica, que duró casi 30 años, por el permiso del Gobierno Federal para operar libremente en Frecuencia Modulada por el 105.5.

    En 2006, Radio Huaya ganó. Ahora, es una radio que se escucha en más mil comunidades de la huasteca, la zona norte de Veracruz, las sierras de Hidalgo, Querétaro y Puebla y el sur de Tamaulipas.

    Transmite en 4 lenguas: español otomí, náhuatl y tepehua. Y con "un pie en la cabina y otro pie en las comunidades", un pequeño equipo de 12 personas encabeza ya una nueva batalla: la resistencia contra empresas nacionales y extranjeras que han puesto el ojo en esta zona para la extracción de minerales, energía e hidrocarburos. http://ladobe.com.mx

    More obscure IFT filings reveal more frequency changes on the horizon. I have found 11 more of these. All clear the Article 90 reserved band as much as possible. Asterisks denote 400 kHz spacing. For completeness, the previously discovered XHACA move is also added.

    XHADA Ensenada BC - 106.9 to 104.1

    XHETOR Matamoros Coah. - 107.5 to 99.9*
    XHYW Mérida Yuc. - 106.7 to 98.9*

    XHTH Palizada Camp. - 106.5 to 105.7
    XHTW Tampico Tamps. - 107.1 to 94.9*
    XHVK Gómez Palacio Dgo. - 106.7 to 96.7*
    XHERJ Mazatlán Sin. - 107.5 to 105.1
    XHTNT Los Mochis Sin. - 106.5 to 100.5

    XHOX Cd. Obregón Sin. - 106.5 to 99.3

    XHXT Tepic Nay. - 107.3 to 105.7
    XHEMAX Tecomán Col. - 106.1 to 105.3

    XHSK Ruiz Nay. - 106.7 to 100.7

    XHFW Tampico Tamps. - 106.3 to 88.5 (Added November 12)

    XHDRD Durango Dgo. - 106.1 to 104.5 (Added November 15)

    XHGUA Guaymas Son. - 106.9 to 94.7 (Added November 15)

    XHIR Cd. Valles, SLP - 106.1 to 103.7 (Added November 15)

    XHRTM Macuspana, Tab. - 107.7 to 99.5 (Added November 15)

    XHEOLA Tampico, Tamps. - 107.9 to 103.5 (Added November 16)
    XHXR Cd. Valles SLP - 106.9 to 100.5
    XHLAC Lázaro Cárdenas Mich. - 107.9 to 99.7

    XHBJ Benito Juárez (Cd. Victoria) Tamps. - 107.1 to 94.5 (Added November 16)

    XHACA Acapulco Gro. - 106.3 to 96.1 (see previous post)

    The IFT will not move a station unless it can provide the same coverage/technical characteristics on a new frequency, so power levels and classes will not be changing.

    It also will not move stations like XHEPQ where international coordination is a factor.

    First on the Mexico Beat: Multimedios Radio Tips Its IFT-4 Plans

    Multimedios Radio made out with six stations in IFT-4. For five of them, their format fate has been determined.

    Recent redesigns of the La Caliente and Hits FM (incomplete) sites have led to all but one station being added to the pages of those formats.

    La Caliente, as is typical with MM, enters into all of the new markets that will be served, on these stations:

    XHPMAZ-FM 92.1 Mazatlán
    XHPUGC-FM 96.3 Úrsulo Galván, Ver.
    XHPALV-FM 100.9 Alto Lucero-Xalapa, Ver. (listed as Xalapa)

    Úrsulo Galván is on the coast halfway between Xalapa and Veracruz Puerto. No doubt that it will be a DX target next year. Alto Lucero is northeast of Xalapa. Both towns are getting their first stations, though in the case of Alto Lucero it looks like MM is aiming for the state capital.

    Accounts for LaCaliente963 and LaCaliente1009 were created in September on Twitter with no profile images, or indeed, no followers at the present time. LaCaliente921 already exists for the Ensenada station, so LaCalienteMzt was created - this one does have an image ready. All three have Facebook pages, with 43, 13, and 2 likes, respectively.

    Hits FM rides into two markets:

    XHPCTN-FM 88.3 Compostela-Tepic
    XHPCCC-FM 103.3 Cd. Cuauhtémoc (on air October 25!)

    MM stripped GRD, its affiliate, of the Hits FM brand recently, prompting XHDT to become "Like 98.3 FM". You had to know this was coming — I did as early as July. (XHPCCC also has its social accounts up and running.) As for Compostela-Tepic, given the fact that MM is aiming for Tepic, this makes sense because of XHXT airing La Caliente.

    However, today's revelations leave listeners in Ensenada still in the dark. Hits FM is still the most likely format for 94.7 XHPENS-FM, given that XHHC is already airing La Caliente.

    Mazatlán is down an AM station.

    A concession renewal application reveals that one of the Combos of '94 has said sayonara to AM. On June 1, Radio XEVU, S.A. de C.V., formally surrendered 720 AM XEVU after forty years. (Page 4)

    Another radio controversy has emerged in Mexican public radio. This time, it's XHUPC-FM that's the focus of the spotlight.

    @RadioIPN on Twitter released a blistering statement today in which it is stated that El Politécnico en Radio was "handed over" to Radio UNAM and UAM Radio management, with not a single politécnico running the IPN's station and the culture of the 80-year-old polytechnic institute being "kidnapped" as a result.

    Apparently, Jesús Ramos Subirachs, who had run the station for 20 years, was totally boxed out of the naming of the station's new administration, including Georgina Tapia Mejía, former Head of Planning at Radio UNAM, Arfaxad Ortíz (also of Radio UNAM), and UAM Radio's Magdalena Mares.

    On October 6, all the locks were changed at the station, and the personnel on duty were treated "as if they were criminals", according to this statement, which demands that the president and Secretary of Public Education Aurelio Nuño do something to return the station to the IPN community.

    This is the first tweet from the @RadioIPN account, which had been the station's official Twitter account, in nearly a month. The station's website is little more than a placeholder at the present time. The Facebook has similarly been inactive.
