Refer to Fold-Out 4 while reading this step. Tilt the launcher enough to
permit convenient insertion of the reflector attachment assembly into the top
of the center mast section. Rotate the reflector attachment assembly until the
yellow stripes on the mast section and on the reflector attachment assembly
line up and the catch locks in place.
The dipole normally is stored in the operating position in the reflector. If the
dipole is to be installed, open the reflector and insert the dipole stem into the
mounting stub on the reflector. Push the dipole in against the spring and lock
it in position by rotating it one-twelfth of a turn clockwise. The yellow stripes
on the dipole stem and the mounting stud should line up and the catch should
lock in place. Locate the parts involved in this step in Fold-Out 4.
Continue to refer to Fold-Out 4 as you read this step. Connect the 1-foot 6-
inch cable assembly RF CG-3444/U to the connector at the rear of the dipole
and to the connector on the reflector spine. Also connect the 50 ft or 80 ft
cable assembly, RF CG-3443/U to the other end of the connector on the
STEP 10: Open the reflector to the required position for BAND I, II, or III as indicated
by the numbers next to the screw fasteners on the hinge plates. Lock the
reflector in this position with the screw fasteners at each end of the hinge.
Make sure that both screw fasteners are seated correctly in their detents.
Refer to Fold-Out 4 and locate the parts mentioned in this step.
STEP 11: Tilt the launcher and fit the assembled antenna on the reflector attachment
assembly for either horizontal or vertical polarization. The yellow stripe on
the antenna must line up with the yellow stripe on the reflector attachment
assembly so that the dipole is directly over the mast section. Refer to Fold-
