The ham radio ALE HF Network is now on the air 24/7.
The network is in the process of expanding globally.
It currently covers most of north america with
5 "Pilot Stations".
The primary purpose of the network is for
emergency/disaster relief communications. It is also a
method for hams to connect with each other on HF/VHF
for normal voice or text QSOs by direct station calling
or net call ups.
Through the Pilot Stations, HF operators can send ALE-SMS
texting internet short email to/from cell mobile phones,
black berry type devices, PDAs, and computers.
For those interested in PropNet type functions,
realtime propagation information can be derived
from the station ID bursts that are transmitted
approximately every hour on each band, and by automatic
copy of the callsigns during QSOs.
Free band-scanning ALE software is available to decode
the callsigns with time-date-frequency:
Currently there are 5 pilot stations 24/7 on the air,
3.5MHz to 28MHz (1.8MHz and 50MHz optional).
Other ALE stations are on the air as operators are
