    Article roundup:

    El Heraldo de Saltillo: "Lamentan académicos de la Narro riesgo de que desaparezca Radio Universidad Agraria"

    XESAL-AM 1220, Saltillo daytimer, is at real risk of closing up shop due to the negligence of the agricultural school's rector; the current rector is desperately working to try and renew the permit that expired three years ago (the article says with the SCT, though he should be talking with the IFT instead). I've posted an article or two about this recently as well.

    El Financiero: "Apagón analógico deja sin señal de TV a un millón de personas en NL"

    There are more unprepared people than you thought there were in Monterrey. There are warnings that this could mean serious loss of viewers elsewhere in the country.

    Notimundo: "Porcentaje de población sin señal por apagón analógico; IFT"

    This article notes that the apagón could be about to extend: this week or next, the IFT Pleno will vote to authorize an apagón in León, Celaya, Querétaro and San Luis Potosí. My only concern with the first two cities is a shadow channel concern (Azteca León) and XHCEP in Celaya (which may be exempt even as it builds its digital facilities); the other two are fully ready, in Querétaro's case with two digital-only TV stations. And in several weeks time, the IFT may be able to call an apagón for the Mexico City area.

    Somehow that doesn't surprise me.

    Thanks for the interesting news, Raymie.

    News of two big station sign-ons that bring digital parity to two new cities:

    XHRCG-30 Saltillo

    This was the last remaining station in Saltillo and could pave the way for an apagón of remaining stations soon. Testing only.

    XHST-28 (13.x) Mérida

    Identifying as "XHST-HD" but with no HD programming, just a 16:9 SD picture. This station appeared in the recent RPC document dump and is fairly strong for a state network at 100 kW ERP (analog station was licensed for 42, operating at 5). This station is in full operation.

    So on one forum, a user was pretty happy because the number of TV stations in digital in Jiquilpan, Mich., went from one to three.

    The one was XHSAM-TDT 38 (8, CE). The other two were Aztecas at 10-1 and 12-1. I was confused until I figured out that they had to be shadows. (They are, of the Guadalajara stations with PSIP matching their analog locations.)

    Some more loose ends to wrap up:

    #1. For months Televisa's Istmo stations had been plagued by interference that prevented them from being regularly in HD. That has been changed and the stations there are in HD.

    #2. León! León! Azteca's León shadows are on the air...but with complete surprise new frequencies! XHCCG-TDT 14 (8.x) and XHMAS-TDT 16 (13.x). That is nowhere near a match. What is up? One of the parent stations is on 33 which makes this even more surprising. This may allow an apagón for that city.

    There's an important date in the Mexican Constitution: December 31, 2015, the apagón analógico nationwide. Or is it?

    Javier Lozano, the head of the Senate's Communications and Transportation Commission, wants it delayed. Even Gabriel Sosa Plata thinks it needs a delay.

    I guess a lot of people in Mexico sold their Free TV that was provided by their government on Ebay and thought the analog shutdown was a Joke.
    check out a unboxing of a Mexico government provided TV here. its the same one that guy is holding in the news story above.

    Thanks for the information, Raymie.

    My thought is that those people who sold the DTVs always expected from the beginning that the government would give them another one after they sold the first one. I think that is another way of working the welfare system.
