Abstract:

The U.S. Navy has all but ceased to use high frequency HF radio for long-haul ship-shore communications. Satellite systems have rightfully assumed this role, but the antiquated nature of the Navy HF system has soured planners on even considering HF for supplementary uses or other roles. In an attempt to dispel this undeserved reputation and gain operating experience for application of automation to new shipboard HF systems, an HF radio communications system incorporating automatic link establishment ALE, single-tone serial modems and 500-watt transceivers was deployed on USS TARAWA LHA-1 and to serving Navy shore communications stations during her recent deployment to the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf This paper describes the use of this system for bidirectional 600 baud message traffic.
