XSS ALE Net Continues to Mystify
Sam on the UDXF newsgroup this morning (2/8/2007) posted his latest round of intercepts on the infamous XSS HF ALE net. He even managed to observe a two way conversation between the XSS ALE Address (probable net control and dominate sounding station) and unid XKY ALE Address.
Some other ALE Addresses that Sam and others have logged include:
XAS / XBC / XDV / XFY / XGJ / XGP / XHK / XHZ / XKA / XKD / XKW / XKY / XJF / XJT / XJP / XJT / XJV / XLG
I should note that the ALE addresses above are static as they are being used over again over a long time period. Thanks Sam for your continued diligence in monitoring this mystery.
Here is the latest list of frequencies for this net: 2199.0 2217.4 3161.0 3227.4 3280.0 4166.4 4226.5 6243.0 6425.0 8108.5 8126.4 10360.0 10458.0 12057.5 12333.0 14510.0 16553.5 18405.0 20300.0 20965.0 kHz.
One theory about this net is that it may be associated with NATO in Europe, but there still is no definitive proof of this. If you have any insight, drop us a note at larryvanhorn @ monitoringtimes.com. I am interested in hearing from some of the readers of this blog.
