Brazilian Army, Rio Grande do Sul State

Packet Radio communications have been logged recently by me on 9122 and 9182 kHz.
Other QRGs logged in the past: 8402, 18247, 16334 kHz. Most traffic is encrypted.
Shifts used: 200/300, bauds: 200/300
Main units use Harris transceivers, and 1KW output. Other units use Motorola MICOM-2 and
125 Watts.

Although Brazilian Armed Forces moved most of its comms to sattelite, and there is a plan of
integrating all Forces into only one big net, there is still some good stuff to be monitored on HF:
The Navy is using USB/ALE and Pactor/Sitor-B, Air Force is still being heard on some occasions
on USB/ALE, the Army still have a few links using HF Packet.


Army's Packet Radio ID's:

AM-1: Amazonas State
