Tijuana Mexico Area Code

Sandy asks…

Does anyoe knoe the area code for tijuana mexico?

Tijuana answers:

If you are dialing from the USA you will dial 011-52, and then the 10 digit number. 011 is the international code, and 052 is the country code. The area code in Tijuana is 664.

If you are dialing from within Mexico, it will be 01-664-10 digit number.

If you are dialing a cell phone there may be a different code. Perhaps, 011-52-045-664-XXX-XXXX. The 045 indicates a cell phone.

If it is a cell phone, you will hear something in spanish… Just listen and wait. They are telling you that there could be additional charges because you are calling a cell phone.

Suerte!

Nancy asks…

Why most of the radio stations have their name starting with “K” or “W”? Why most often 4 letters?

Tijuana answers:

“K” and “W” are only in the US. The station owners choose their “call sign”, and many try to approximate where they’re located, such as KSAC might be in Sacramento, CA., or a local landmark, such as KABL in the San Francisco Bay Area, after the cable cars. They had a distinctive sound of the cable car bells whenever the call sign was given on air.

Many of the early radio stations had three letter calls signs, KGO in San Francisco, KSL in Salt Lake City, or KFI in Los Angeles. Sometimes the station used their network affiliation in the call sign, WABC or WCBS in New York, KABC in Los Angeles.

Stations in other countries use different letters. Canada starts with “C”, Mexico starts with “X” (XETRA in Tijuana) Other countries have their own letters as well. There is an international organization which controls the country codes, but within each country, the government controls the station call signs and all other details such as broadcast frequency and transmitter power.
