United States

The U.S. Department of State maintains multiple emergency communication systems.[1][2] One of these is the HF radio-based Emergency & Evacuation Network (E&E), to which all U.S. embassies, consulates general, consulates, and selected other establishments belong.

The following ten numbered channels are used by this network worldwide. All traffic is modulated on the upper sideband. The modes used are 2G ALE (MIL-STD-188-141A) for link management, and plain voice for communication.

  1. 5748.6 kHz
  2. 6902.6 kHz
  3. 8058.6 kHz
  4. 10733.6 kHz
  5. 11168.6 kHz
  6. 13503.6 kHz
  7. 16283.6 kHz
  8. 18248.6 kHz
  9. 20810.6 kHz
  10. 24883.6 kHz

The E&E is organized into regional groups, comprised of a network control station (NCS) and a number of neighboring missions. The NCS performs radio checks with its stations once a week on a fixed schedule; in case of an answer, link quality information is exchanged in plain voice. Individual stations are also free to reach stations from outside their own group.

Example radio check between KWX57 (Embassy Warsaw, Poland) and KWS95 (Embassy Tirana, Albania)

Apart from the above channels, sporadic 2G ALE calls to DoS stations are also made on the HFGCS channels: 3137, 4721, 5708, 6721, 9025, 11226, 13215, 15043, 18003, 23337 kHz.

This is a non-exhaustive list of stations present on the network, with control stations highlighted in yellow. The callsigns are used in both ALE and voice.
