    This may be a good thing. If we set up sanctuary cities for illegal hams, then the next logical step would be sanctuary cities for legal hams. Think about it. No antenna restrictions, lots large enough to accomodating wire hf antennas, no noise producing electronics, wifes, or significant others tending to contest operators with food and cold beverages. Heaven in America!

    THEN BY your logic:confused:, NO license is to follow?

    I hope I'm dead and buried before THAT:(:mad::rolleyes: .

    Maybe related to the cartels?

    Also I don't know how many of you are aware of it but there are certain frequencies that have started popping up in the last year or two where there's a number of Mexican stations operating with calls that do not show up on qrz or other places but they're regularly on the air daily.

    I have heard them talking about running up to 10,000 Watts, with a pair of 3CX3000s, 4CX5000 tubes, and one has a 4CX7500 and stuff like that on the air.

    Many of us are referring to them as the "New Border Blasters".

    And we have to stay away from the Border Blaster frequencies because, they're running extremely wide Side Band audio. They definitely sound good! There's a number of license U.S. ham that talk to them daily in QSOs, they appear to be good operators.
    • A few of the U S and Canadian hams have been joking, that it's the new kind of Border Invasion, with the Border Blasters, blasting across the Airways.

    Unlike most places in the world hams no longer have log book requirements. In Mexico all Mexican hams are required to submit operating information each January.

    Another thing that's been going on in Mexico and it goes back to follow the money$$$$$$$$$$$$ under the Mexican rules if you call now them that, a ham may loan their license to anyone, as long as operation will be within accepted parameters. ( apparently running 10,000 Watts is acceptable)
    If there is no current reciprocal licensing,
    It's about to the point the only way for a foreigner to operate in Mexico is to borrow $$$$$$$$$ a call sign.

    I for one who operates in Central America and occasionally flyover Mexico. I haven't seen an FCC notice that a license is not reciprocal in Mexico and I've only seen blurbs from the Mexican authorities about it. The last official notice that I obtained from the Mexicans, which I'm trying to dig up right now says we can still use a reciprocal call sign designation.

    No code, no exam, ultimately no license. Licences? We don't need no stinking Licenses!

    Haven't heard them. What frequencies do they hang out on? Either I am just tuning past, or propagation isn't my freind.
