UNID 1060 khz 1900 UTC 4 Aug 2019
« on: August 04, 2019, 1927 UTC »
Pulled this in a few minutes ago off a Las Cruces NM-based SDR. 

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lxY8ohUGSY0t5VfPTCZGXg1CkdcDzniP

Using Google Translate and a rudimentary knowledge of Spanish, I believe I have figured out that the call was "XBL"-something.  I heard "equis bae elle", but was unable to decipher the rest.  The announcer also says that the station has "mil watts potencia", or one thousand watts of power.  I heard San Diego and El Paso mentioned as well. 

Anyone have a clue as to what this could be?

So I'm thinking this was possibly KHRO-AM, but off frequency.  The station's format is listed as "classic hits", and owner "Entravision Communications" primarily seems to serve the Spanish-speaking community.  This would also explain the location of El Paso that I heard.

Thoughts?
