COTHEN ALE Network (4-hours monitoring)

Last night I parked the FDM-S1/SW2 receiver (an SDR) on 11494.0 KHz/USB, from about 0030z to 0430z, to monitor and catch COTHEN's ALE Network traffic and ALE addresses (11494.0 is one of the frequencies operated by COTHEN Network). 

COTHEN is an HF ALE network that uses landlines to connect nineteen transmission sites spanning the nation in order to form one unified coverage area. Currently, the network has 19 sites, 89 remote communications consoles (RCC’s), and a TSC in Orlando, FL.
