XHFCE-FM (Radio Huayacocotla: La Voz de los Campesinos – "The Voice of the Campesinos") is an indigenous community radio station based in Huayacocotla, a community of some 4000 inhabitants in the mountainous north of the Mexican state of Veracruz.
It began broadcasting, with a permit on 2390 kHz, a short wave frequency, on August 15, 1965 as XEJN-OC ("OC" for onda corta), using a 500 W transmitter. On February 14, 2005, the Secretariat of Communications and Transport (SCT) granted the station a legal permit after 27 years of negotiations, assigning it the call sign XHFCE-FM and an FM frequency of 105.5 MHz.
In its early years, the station's programming focused on adult literacy and numeracy efforts before evolving toward a more general community-radio format: local information, regional cultural dissemination, agricultural news, campesino rights. It carries programming in both Spanish and the local indigenous languages.
