And,  this fellow was a federal employee?  Using his own equipment?  Now, that's really weird.

If a federal employee, one would think federal assets would be used.....

SHARES was a volunteer organization, but ARRL said that it was now staffed with paid federal employees.

SHARES is FEMA's organization for emergency mangers and agencies to use to communicate. Yes, sometimes it is manned by amateurs and sometimes by officials.

The radio equipment and modes it uses are highly restrictive, with hi stability required, and only Pactor III or IV connections allowed on digital.

SHARES is federal employees with amateur radio licenses and their own equipment. This is the first time SHARES ever activated. Mike KM4WUO offers some of his experiences at https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/force-of-two-in-depth-stories-from-2-puerto-rico-volunteers-on-hamradionow.586192/page-23.

I thought SHARES used ALE regularly.  I don't know much about SHARES, Pactor, or ALE, so I could very well be wrong.
