XHGU received its concession on October 17, 1980. It was owned by Guillermo O. Huerta Ramírez and broadcast with an ERP of 23 kW. In July 1982, XHGU was authorized to double its power to 46 kW.

On December 31, 2002, the SCT authorized XHGU to move its transmitter to Ojitos, on Cerro del Indio, with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts.
