      WD8ARZ in South Bend, Indiana is a HFN MarsAle Pilot Station supporting
      the HF Interoperability Exercise for 2013

      Trimode WINMOR is in operation in parallel with the MarsAle operation.
      MarsAle is doing the scanning for the entire system.

      To do a WINMOR operation, it is required that an ALE connection be
      established first. Once that ALE connection is made, make the WINMOR
      connection. When complete with your task, disconnect from WINMOR, and
      then disconnect from ALE. Both will time out if connection is lost, such
      as due to propagation conditions. Once timed out, the MarsAle program
      will resume scanning. Frequencies of operation are listed below.

      Two ways to establish connection:

      - While PcAle or MarsAle program your using is scanning, make a call to
      the station you wish to establish an ALE connection with. Such as
      KQ6XA. Your program will make calls to the station of interest on
      frequencies that that station had previously been heard on if that
      information has been collected yet. Other wise it will start making
      calls on each frequency in your QRQ file until timed our or a connection
      is made.

      - Other method is to not have your ale program scanning. Pick one of the
      frequencies listed below that you think is the best propagation to the
      station you wish to call. Put in the station call and initiate the
      calling. The station your calling must either be on frequencies, or is
      scanning. If the station hears your call, it will accept a connection if
      conditions are good enough

      It is possible I might be at the keyboard from time to time, but in
      general, dont expect that.

      Base Station here is a TS-480HX capable of 200 watts output and
      operating off a battery system 24 / 7. Same system is used in the
      mobile from time to time.

      Back up MarsAle station is FT-1000MP.

      Base antenna is a Carolina Windom 10 - 160 Meters, 265' long
      horizontally running North to South.

      Mobile antenna for voice is a HiQ 5/160 10-160 meters. ALE runs off a
      long whip and auto tuner.

      At times I will be running a second ALE station using PcAle from the
      base or mobile putting the systems through there paces.
