   While it's not the sort of automatic reciprocal agreement
   that exists between the U.S. and Canada, The U.S. and Mexico
   have a reciprocal agreement, and the procedures (documented
   on the ARRL web site) sound straightforward. It's just
   not something you do on the spot.

Apparently you can do it on the spot, at least in Tijuana, and I
believe at other major crossing points.

Major DXpeditions and contest operations are prohibited without
special permission from Mexico City.

It's a sensitive issue, though.
