    Default Database of Mexican and Cuban FM Stations

    Jim Thomas has done a tremendous amount of work on the Mexican and Cuban sections of the WTFDA North American FM Station Database over the past few weeks. Mexico and Cuba are complete with formats, slogans and lat/long co-ordinates to Mexican and Cuban towns and cities.

    I seriously doubt that any other site is more complete. For help go here, but briefly, to search for Mexican stations type XH in the callsign search box (add the estado code in the state box if you want the stations in a particular state) and then search.

    For Cuban FM stations just type CU in the state field and click search.

    The Cayman Islands are there also. Just type CI in the state field and click search.

    Thanks, Jim!

    It looks great.

    I sent in some additions to the list of information for the few Mexico stations missing format information.

    Yeah, some of them were just that research was needed. Most of them were permits and not concessions, too, and quite a few are new-to-air (like the Mérida XEEP relay, put on air recently as part of celebrations for Radio Educación's 90th birthday).

    There are also a lot of permitted (read: noncommercial) radio stations too, especially because of the size of state radio networks.

    I would also suggest the creation of a format labeled "CDI - Indigenous" for all those CDI stations which have effectively "variety" formats but which also have substantial programming in indigenous languages.

    I'm afraid I don't have the time, either, Glenn... Radio is a far more dynamic and ever-changing beast than TV.

    And now 18 months down the road, Cuba FM listings are even better. It is well documented in the October 2016 VUD issue, in Mike's Mailbox column. Cuba officially released actual transmitter coordinates, kilowatts, network names, call letter re-assignments...you might say the whole ball of wax. IF you haven't tried out the WTFDA FM database for a Cuban FM search, give it a try. Type CU in the state field.

    Yes, this is another update to the WTFDA FM database. Mike may make some kind of announcement or make a mention about this in an upcoming VUD. The FM db is almost shining like a brand new penny. We are putting the finishing touches on adding ALL of the Central American countries to the WTFDA FM database. Honduras will probably be complete in a couple more weeks. Since early December, the Central American countries Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Panamá have been added. So if you haven't been there in awhile, hop on over and check out all the bells and whistles.
