While listening to the North Pacific on 13339 kHz, I picked up some Aeromexico traffic on the same freq. Comms were in Spanish. To me it sounds like Aeromexico 002, listed as a Boeing 777-200 from Madrid to Mexico City.

I have attached a recording if someone could help translate.
13339.0_aeromexico_ldoc.mp3

Unfortunately the signal was not very strong but the plane was easier to pick up.

Aeromexico hf frequency

yes this is the frequency used by aeromexico 13.339 usb. they contact Radio Mexico in Mexico City. They ask for weather information for a particular city in Mexico or the USA. I have heard the aircraft and if conditions are good you can hear the base in Mexico City. I have seen the dipoles and hf log periodic antenna at the airport in Mexico City. They have a very nice setup. They also use 17.795 in the past but conditions are not that great at that frequency.

Thanks for the info. Someday I will learn Spanish so I can start monitoring more on HF. Lots of interesting activity from the sounds of it :) As for my antenna I am using a Wellbrook ALA1530 loop and radio is Icom R75.

Interesting catch for sure. There aren't many LDOCs left on HF anymore, from what I understand. 73 Mike
