including Secretaria de Salud, plug a concert at 5pm in the Palacio de
Bellas Artes; then some jazz. I'm rechecking it following this news from
Julian Santiago Diez de Bonilla in Mexico City, Feb 15:

"Hola Glenn, A partir de hoy, XEPPM Radio Educacion onda corta 6185 kHz esta
haciendo pruebas con su antiguo transmisor Elcom Bauer con capacidad de 5
kW. Al parecer su transmisor de 10 kW esta averiado. La escucho en estos
momentos con un SINPO de 5. Saludos, Julian Santiago, Enviado desde mi iPad"

Says starting today it's testing with old 5 kW transmitter. Apparently their
10 kW is out of order. But I find that it's no better here than it had been

I had not measured 6185 precisely lately, but a sesquimonth ago it was on
the plus side per Wolfgang Bueschel:
"6185.011, upper side of the channel now, R Educacion Mexico D.F. fluttery
S=8-9 signal at 0311 UT on Dec 29,
logs from Cape Canaveral Florida state"

Unless one or both transmitters vary more than this difference of 19 Hz,
that might be a way to differentiate them.
