relative baseplate dimensions. The baseplate areas must be leveled to within one inch relative to each other.
Leveling screws are located on each corner of the portable stand which provide approximately
one inch of adjustment for each corner of the Radome-Platform mounted thereon. The purpose
of these adjustments can be defeated if the Portable Stand baseplate areas are not leveled to
within one inch relative to each other prior to assembling the stand.
(1) EQUIPMENT UNLOADING AND PLACEMENT -When the site has been properly staked out and the area
leveled for the portable stand and hoisting unit, unload the equipment in accordance with the following procedures.
a. Unload the 80-foot towers and associated equipment.
b. Unload the portable stand and hoisting unit near the point where it will first be used.
c. If the Antenna System is to be installed on the 80-foot tower, park the trailer containing the system
near the base of the tower, leaving room to assemble and operate the portable hoisting unit between the trailer and the
tower. Position the trailer, relative to the four corners of the tower, so that the Antenna System is approximately oriented
to true north or the selected zero reference point.

the installation site. Position the trailer so that the Antenna System is approximately oriented to true north or the selected
zero reference point.
4. ANTENNA SYSTEM SITE INSTALLATION PROCEDURES (See Figure 5-1)
A. GENERAL - When the Antenna System is shipped from the factory, the antenna pedestal, elevation drive
support casting, elevation drive assembly, and the center section of the reflector are installed in the radome-platform.
The reflector is stowed in the zenith position and the radome deflated and tucked into the platform. A portable transit
cover is installed over the Antenna System while the system is in transit or storage. If, upon receipt of the Antenna
System, it is not so assembled, the antenna pedestal, elevation drive support casting, elevation drive assembly, reflector
center section, and radome should be installed in accordance with Figure 5-2.
