OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT
This section contains the procedures necessary for proper operation and adjustment of the Antenna System and is
written with the presupposition that operating personnel are thoroughly familiar with the content of the system and its
operating controls. If not, it is recommended that Section V of this manual and the appendix to this manual be reviewed
in detail prior to operation. Prior to system operation, the following cautions and notes should be observed.
When the input power cable is attached to the Antenna Control Power Supply and is
energized from an external power source, approximately 208-volts AC should be present in
the power supply at the line side terminals of the ANTENNA SYSTEM POWER circuit breaker,
CB3, and the RADOME POWER circuit breaker, CB1. Before these circuit breakers are turned
on, ensure that the electrical power is within the 208-volt 10 percent AC limit across any two
of the three line side terminals of any of the circuit breakers by testing the voltage with a
portable meter before placing the circuit breakers to the ON position.
Check the AC power source to ensure that the line frequency is within the 48- to 62-CPS limit.
Ensure that all switches and circuit breakers on the Antenna Position Control Indicator and
Antenna Control Power Supply are off.
2. RADOME INFLATION
A. After installation, and prior to system operation, the radome should be inflated in accordance with the following
