    MICOM-2ES/2RS/2TS ALE Supplement to Owner’s Guide New ALE Features This section covers the new ALE features that meet the requirements of MIL-STD-188-141B. This includes a description of selective calling features, and operating instructions for the various types of ALE calls. This includes new call types, as well as call types already supported under MIL-STD-188-141A but have been expanded under new version.

  • Page 21: Address And Call Types

    New ALE Features In the following sections, “A,” “B,” “C” or “D” indicates any alphanumeric character other than “@” or “?”. Note MICOM 2 has the capacity to store and use 100 addresses of up to 15 characters each. MICOM 2 will reject addresses longer than 15 characters, and will notify you with an UFA WRONG message.

  • Page 23

    New ALE Features • A receiving station will accept a wildcard character as a substitute for the alphanumeric character in its own address that occupies the same position. This means that the wildcard character is a substitute for any of 36 characters and digits (A to Z, 0 to 9) in the Basic 38 character subset.

  • Page 25

    New ALE Features AnyCalls An AnyCall is a general broadcast similar to AllCall with the difference that it requests responses, without designating any specific addressee(s). Therefore, an ALE station may use the AnyCall to generate responses from essentially unspecified stations, and thus it can identify new stations and connectivities. The global AnyCall address is @@?.

    MICOM-2ES/2RS/2TS ALE Supplement to Owner’s Guide Using the MultiNet Feature Normally, a radio operating in the ALE mode receives and transmits only in its currently selected net. However, there are operational scenarios in which it is beneficial to enable radios to use the ALE functions while still being aware of what is going on in additional nets (for example, firefighters and paramedics must often respond to the same emergency), and be able of answering a call in another net.

  • Page 27: Using Ale Functions In The Channel Mode

    New ALE Features Messages The ALE enables you to create, send or receive alphanumeric messages (“paging” messages) in accordance with the AMD (Automatic Display Message) definition in Federal Standard FS-1045. The messages are displayed on the receiving station LCD display, and can be up to 90 characters long.

The stack entry contains the self-address of the calling station, and any message sent by the calling station when it sent the call set up request. The stack can contain up to 10 calls. The radio records an address in the stack only once, even if the same caller made several unanswered calls.
