The Mexican Federal Telecommunications Commission ("CoFeTel"), 
Mexico's "FCC", announced today that hams in Mexico have been 
authorized the use of the 4B prefix for 2010, to commemorate 
both the 200th anniversary of Mexican independence and the 100th 
anniversary of the Mexican Revolution.  With this in mind, maybe 
we will hear some of our Mexican friends using this prefix on the 
satellites throughout the rest of 2010.  

The formal announcement of this, in Spanish, is available from the
CoFeTel web site at:


(put all of that on one line, with no spaces after the 2008, if
the e-mail cuts the link in half)

Good luck, and 73!
