    The highest freq in his ALE channel scan is 21432.5 kHz.
    He has ALE, which provides something similar to that, transmitting an hourly station ID, on every channel he is using (when he manually enables it).
    It is easy to copy him on ALE, and just about anyone that can copy his ALE signal can link (like selcall) with him on ALE for a voice QSO.
