INFORMATION ABOUT
AMATEUR RADIO ALE CHANNELS

Note 1
 
All Amateur Radio ALE channels use "USB" Upper SideBand (including frequencies below 10MHz). USB conforms to International Standards for Automatic Link Establishment, and enables interoperability. 
Note 2
 
This ALE channel list is in everyday use in the Amateur Radio service, for normal communication internationally, regionally, and locally. ALE channels are frequency coordinated internationally, and operators are subject to the different rules, regulations, and bandplans of their region and local country of operation. There is commonly an ALE signal active on the air, every minute of every day on these frequencies. It is the responsibility of every ALE operator to maintain the highest standards for all transmissions. Some channels or modes in the list may not be available in every country. The HF spectrum is a shared resource, so there is no guarantee that a channel is clear in a local area or region. ALE uses LBT (Listen Before Transmit) If a channel is occupied at any given moment, ALE will try to select another channel instead.
Note 3
 
Amateur Radio ALE standards:
1. ALE System= MIL-STD 188-141 ; FED-1045 (8FSK - 2kHz Bandwidth)
2. If repetitive sounding, transmit soundings only on the Primary Data Channels or Pilot Channels for your IARU Region.
3.
Calling or sounding transmission: Maximum Duration = 22 seconds.
4. Sounding Interval= 60 Minutes (or more) for same channel.
5.
When sounding, always use "This Was Sound" (TWS).
6.
Scan rate: 1 channel per second when scanning 10 channels or less.
7. Scan rate: 2 ch/sec or faster when scanning 11 channels or more.
8. Digital Modes Centre Audio Frequency = 1625Hz
9. Short text messaging standard = AMD .

10. Always transmit "CLEAR LINK" after ALL CALLS, QSOs, and LINKS!
Note 4 Amateur ALE Net Calls
1.
HFN = Global ALE High Frequency Network (HFN) Calling any Data/Text ALE Station
2. HFL = Calling Any Voice SSB ALE Station
Note 5*

or no sounding.

Note 6
 
HFLINK is an international resource: for radio operators using ALE Automatic Link Establishment and Selcall Selective Calling; for the  development of communications for organisations, Emergency / Disaster Relief networks; and for the development of ALE operating methods applicable to Amateur Radio Service. HFLINK is the Frequency and Address Coordination group for International Amateur Radio ALE and Selective Calling.
