XEBCO-AM was a radio station in Colima, Colima, broadcasting on 1210 kHz. It operated from June 26, 1986 to April 30, 2007.

On May 1, 2007, it was replaced with a new FM radio station, XHIRC-FM.


XEBCO came to the air on June 26, 1986, as part of a joint project between the Instituto Mexicano de la Radio and the state government of Colima. It was one of several new partnership stations between IMER and state governments established in the 1980s. Broadcasting with 50 kW power day and 5 kW night, its signal covered the state of Colima as well as portions of Michoacán and Jalisco. In the IMER era XEBCO was known as "Radio Occidente, La Voz de Colima".

In 2004, IMER and the state government dissolved their partnership, as IMER was seeking to shed stations. The new Instituto de la Radio Colimense (Colima Radio Institute) was formed to manage XEBCO. Under its management, from 2005, the station became known as Conexión 1210 AM.

In 2005, the state government of Colima sought to replace XEBCO with a station on the FM band. In 2006, they received the permit for XHIRC-FM 98.1.

On April 30, 2007, XEBCO left the air for good. The next day, XHIRC-FM "Conexión 98.1 FM" signed on for the first time, under the aegis of the recently expanded Instituto Colimense de Radio y Televisión.
