International stations (continued).
The RT-1209/URC is designed so that frequencies above
29.9999 MHz cannot be selected.
However, frequencies below 2 MHz can be
selected, which causes an automatic tune-fault tone upon keying the PTT
switch. The selection of a frequency below 2 MHz and improper grounding are
the most likely causes of operator-induced faults.
The frequency is
variable from 2 MHz to 29.9999 MHz in 100-Hz steps, allowing 280,000
Performing an EPC to verify a problem reported to you consists of
three parts. They are--
verify installation, verify radio set installation, and do an
equipment performance check.
check the radio, check the antenna, and check the mount.
power check, audio check, and RF check.
hear 1-kHz tone.
hear GMT time signal.
hear net control.
receive a distant station check.
If the NVIS antenna is being used at 5 MHz, the ANTENNA LOADING switch
should be set at--
2 to 10 MHz
10 to 30 MHz
When clicking is heard in the handset at turn-on, this indicates that
frequency is set below 2 MHz.
