MILITARY/AMATEUR RADIO COMMUNICATIONS TEST 2015

SUBJ: ANNUAL ARMED FORCES DAY CROSSBAND 2015
1. The annual MILITARY/AMATEUR RADIO COMMUNICATIONS TEST
will be held on 09-10 MAY 2015.
2. The Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard are
co-sponsoring the annual military/amateur radio communications tests
in celebration of the 65th Anniversary of Armed Forces Day (AFD) and
the 90th Anniversary of MARS. Although the actual Armed Forces Day is
celebrated on Saturday, May 16, 2015, the AFD Military/Amateur
Crossband Communications Test will be conducted 09-10 May 2015 to
prevent conflict with the Dayton Hamvention (15-17 May 2015), which
is the same weekend as the actual Armed Forces Day.
3. The annual celebration is a unique opportunity to test two way
communications between Amateurs and military communicators authorized
in 47 CFR 97.111, and features traditional military to amateur cross
band SSB voice, Morse Code, practice using legacy interoperability
waveforms, as well as an opportunity for Amateurs to utilize more
modern military communications modes such as MIL-STD Serial PSK and
Automatic Link Establishment (ALE). These tests give Amateur Radio
operators and Short Wave Listeners (SWL) an opportunity and a
challenge to demonstrate their individual technical skills, and to
receive recognition from the appropriate military radio station for
their proven expertise. QSL cards will be provided to those stations
making contact with the military stations.

PART I. MILITARY-TO-AMATEUR CROSS BAND SSB & CW TEST CONTACTS.
Military-to-Amateur cross band operations will take place on the
dates/times in ZULU (UTC), and frequencies listed below for each
station. Voice contacts will include operations in single sideband
voice (SSB). Some stations may not operate the entire period,
depending on propagation and manning. Participating military stations
will transmit on selected Military MARS frequencies and listen for
amateur radio stations in the Amateur bands indicated below. The
military station operator will announce the specific amateur band
frequency being monitored. Duration of each voice contact should be
limited to 1-2 minutes. The following stations will be transmitting
on MARS frequencies listed below which are provided as “Window/Dial
Frequency” in kHz. Some stations will use CW to provide the
opportunity to check in by Morse Code.

PART II. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE MESSAGE TEST VIA DIGITAL MODES.
The Secretary of Defense message will be transmitted via Military
Standard radio teletype modes described in MIL-STD 188-110A/B and
listed below. Reception of Serial PSK will provide a technical
challenge to Amateur stations to receive the broadcasts using a high
symbol rate Serial PSK waveform not utilized in Amateur radio, but
found in all modern military equipment.
Additionally, broadcasts will be sent using Wide Shift FSK (RTTY), as
this mode represents a baseline in interoperability common in all
radio services. Specific settings are shown below.
MIL-STD 188-110 A/B Serial PSK.
Software to demodulate the military Serial PSK waveform and detailed
instructions can be downloaded at:
http://www.n2ckh.com/MARS_ALE_FORUM/MSDMT.html.
Utilizing this mode with soundcard equipment can be challenging and
we recommend Amateur stations carefully review the instructions
carefully. Receivers should be set for a 2.7 kHz passband between 300
and 3000 Hz. Audio level should be set to the minimum level that
decodes. Reception of the preamble at the beginning of the
transmission is required to demodulate text.
To practice receiving signals in this mode, tune to dial frequencies
17,443 USB at 1700Z and 2000Z or 13,506.5 USB at 2300Z on Monday,
Wednesday, Friday or Sunday.
FSK in accordance with MIL-STD 188-110A/B
Military FSK is Baudot at 850 Hz, 75 baud, low mark, and 2000 Hz
center. Most RTTY programs can be set to decode this mode. To achieve
low mark while receiving in USB, the reverse shift must be selected.
Although not a capability normally found in Military stations, to
accommodate amateurs some stations will transmit the Secretary of
Defense message using common ham radio modes such as RTTY, PACTOR,
AMTOR, PSK-31, MFSK and MT63. Amateur sound card modes will use
default settings.
The Secretary of Defense message can be received from the stations
listed below.
Frequencies listed below which are provided as “Window/Dial
Frequency” in kHz. All times in Zulu (UTC).

necessary information was not attached to the transcriptions and was

PART III. AUTOMATIC LINK ESTABLISHMENT.
Amateur Stations with Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) capability
can contact a military station on specific half duplex ?cross band?
channels established for this purpose. ALE is a selective calling and
linking method utilized by government, military, and amateur radio
communications.
Military stations will scan and receive certain Amateur HFLINK ALE
frequencies, and transmit on the corresponding military ALE
frequency. Military stations will also transmit ALE station
identification (soundings) on each military frequency at 30 to 90
minute intervals. Amateur stations which are capable may scan the
military frequencies and monitor the soundings to build the LQA
database or select the channel manually. Amateur stations will call
military stations using ALE selective calling on one of the paired
cross band channels. HF Radios with an embedded ALE feature, or ham
radios with computer-based PC-ALE, are compatible for use with the
military 2G-ALE used in this event.
Amateur stations seeking more information about ALE go to
http://hflink.net.
Please note:
Upper Sideband (USB) is utilized on all frequencies for transmit and
receive.
Military stations participating in ALE are listed below:
