1996

1) Starting from the transmitter end, describe how a wave is propagated from an antenna. 2) What property of a wire/metal object makes it a good antenna?

-The length, type of conductor used.
3) What is the characteristic impedance of an antenna?

-Current fed dipole is 70ohms, voltage fed is 2500ohms.
4) What is the purpose of static dischargers on aircrafts? 5) How are static dischargers tested for serviceability? 6) Why on certain parts of an aircraft are static dischargers less and on other parts more? 7) Why are the internal resistances so high?

8) Suppose on a walk around, the pilot discovers several static dischargers missing, can the aircraft fly without this? 9) Discuss principals and methods used to minimize the effects conducted and radiated interference. 10) Suppose a pilot reports a defect: - Ground station reports that the #1 VHF comms transmissions are weak. Discuss what could be the possible cause and how you would troubleshoot and rectify such a defect. 11) What types of antennas are used in the VHF system? -Quarter wave length (Marconi aerial) 12) Discuss advantages and disadvantages of the various types of VHF antennas. 13) What type of antenna is the HF antenna on the L1011? 14) Discuss parameters of VHF antennas; i.e. input impedance, VSWR, propagation, polarization etc.

24) Discuss testing the localizer receiver using the NAV 402AP. troubleshooting and rectification. 25) Discuss testing the glideslope receiver using the NAV 402AP. . its description and operation. 18) What is the order of priority of the PA system? 19) Give a description and operation of the CVR. and the power supply. Discuss possible cause. Discuss possible causes. Discuss the inputs (general and mandatory). “PA is not working”. 20) Why is there a delay in the CVR playback? 21) What is the difference between (P3 audio channel 1 only) requirement and Capt. 1996 17) A defect was reported “No PA available from aft cabin only”./FO 22) Give a basic description of the ILS systems (localizer and glideslope). testing. 28) What is the minimum DB to lose receiver sensitivity? 29) What is VSWR? How does it work? Give a description and operation and describe how it is measured. troubleshooting and rectification. 27) Discuss checking receiver sensitivity. 26) Discuss testing simultaneously the localizer and glideslope to check the autopilot system. 16) Suppose a defect was reported. Works well from all other stations. the control circuit. 23) Discuss the basic functions of the NAV 402AP test set. Show the method of calculation. 30) Describe in detail how you would determine a mismatch using the VSWR meter.LWTR RADIO ORAL 15) Discuss audio integration.

37) Could the NAV 402AP test set be used to check the VOR system? . 34) What precautions must be taken when performing an ADF loop swing in order to minimize the adverse effects? 35) What are the purposes of both antennas? 36) Explain plotting and interpreting ADF loop swing graphs. How many antennas are used and why. why and how they are done. Describe antenna and system operation. 32) Discuss ADF systems. When.LWTR RADIO ORAL 1996 31) Discuss the Thru Line Watt Meter and how it is used to troubleshoot HF/VHF systems. How many points are taken and the correction used. 33) Discuss ADF loop swings. Identify the various errors and how they are corrected on aircraft.
