Tips for identifying TV DX from Mexico and Latin America

Commentary on Mexico network relayer frequency measurements: Please count the frequency as a log, but don't play the guessing game.

Measuring frequencies is OK with me. Counting a frequency as a log is OK with me.

What I don't like is guessing what station it is, and then assigning calls and a location to the frequency.

Until someone reads a text ID, you cannot be sure what you have received on so-and-so frequency. Therefore, why not simply put something like this in your log book and DX reports:
"XEW-2 relayer on channel 3+ on so-and-so frequency with possible location in south Mexico," rather than guessing it is XHVIZ-3 Villahermosa, Tabasco.

Caution: There are surely others that are not listed here. Televisa's current relayer list does not contain all Televisa relayers. Sources: My DX, other DXers' DX, Televisa site.
