All wire junctions in the antenna system must be made with cable lugs of correct size according to the wire gauge. This will prevent bad connections due to corrosion. Where possible long antennas should be installed to maximize the radiated power in the lower frequency bands. The antenna should also be kept as far away as possible from electrical equipment in order to minimize noise. In both cases the whip should be mounted on a pole allowing for the feeder to be erected at an angle of no less than 60 degrees to create a vertical antenna system.1 er The antenna is terminated at the insulator at the top of the Antenna Tuning Unit. If a whip antenna is used this should have an anti-corona ball as a top termination to prevent crackling noise in the receiver.

It should be noted that even though the ATU will tune to the mentioned antenna system length. with the varying impedance of an antenna. A slightly shorter antenna system might be used at the possible sacrifice of the ability to tune at the extreme low end of the frequency band below 2 MHz. of 8. the activation of which is controlled by the ATU processor during the tuning process. Antenna system installation in practice As will be noted on subject of the impedance figures in above table covering three different lengths of Comrod transmitter antennas. On the remaining frequencies within the transmission band the varying mismatch between the transmitter fixed output impedance and the different impedance of the antenna at any given frequency will result in reduced RF power delivered to the antenna – in worst case hardly any power at all . This implies that the measured impedance is in fact that of the actual antenna (electrical) length plus additional 2 m. as stated by the manufacturer. as described above such a condition may only be met at one or . the end result of which is the “transformation” of this into a “fixed” app.Antennas Function of the Antenna Tuning Unit (ATU) The MF/HF transmitter power amplifier (PA) provides a fixed output impedance of 50 ohms over its operating frequency range to which the load (the antenna) should be matched (i. the ATU will easily tune to the impedance of this antenna system . the ATU is put into the antenna circuit to provide variable compensation counteracting the varying impedance of the antenna. To overcome the frequency dependant mismatch between the transmitter output impedance and the antenna (load) impedance.8 m resulting in a total electrical length of the antenna system for which above the impedance figures are valid. Similarly goes for the feed wire connecting the ATU to the antenna that this should be kept at a minimum of 1 m distance from metallic objects.g.

Technical description
3.1

Control Unit
The Control Unit consists of a main module 60-127962 and two sub modules: HMI module 60-127963 and the
Intercon module 60-127964.
The main module consists of the digital part, i.e. the microprocessor, program FLASH, SDRAM, TU-CU Bus
communication driver and Ethernet interface.
The main module also consists of an analog part, i.e. the voltage regulators, the analog interface circuits and
the analog output drivers (audio and light). The main module supports a build-in speaker and the connectivity
of an external 8 ohm speaker. The module also controls the the graphical TFT color display (240x320 dots).

The Intercon module contains the connectors for external interfaces.

3.2 Transceiver Unit
The Transceiver Unit consists of five modules. Three modules located in the base part of the unit: a control
and interconnection module, a receiver/exciter signal path module, and a synthesizer and DSC RX module
including master oscillator, and two modules are located in the door part of the unit: a power amplifier module
including filter bank and a switched mode power supply. The main wiring is by ribbon cables with Micro MaTch
connectors. RF signals are routed in coaxial cables using Taico, MCX and BNC connectors.

3.3

Control/Intercon module 60-127961
The Control/Intercon module performs the digital portion of the transceiver functions requested by the Control
Unit and contains interconnection circuits. The central part is the CPU. The program software is contained
in Flash. The processor communicates with the CU via the CAN interface, with auxiliary equipment via an
Ethernet interface and the ATU via a modem circuit. Internal communication is via the TU Bus. At power up
the CPU boots the DSP.
The transmitter is monitored via the PA Peak, Filter Peak and Filter Average detectors. An adjustable optoisolated battery detector circuit monitors the battery voltage at the Supply Alarm connector and triggers an
alarm when outside the set range. The DSP performs DSC modulator and dual DSC demodulator functions.
The modulator output is through a transversal filter.
The DSP performs the analogue control and audio switching allows loop back test.
Audio circuits convert between unbalanced and balanced lines used by the TU-CU Bus.
The Control/Intercon module stores the TU serial number option codes.

3.4 Synth. and DSC WR module 60-131332
The Synthesiser part includes Master oscillator, dividers, 3.LO PLL and VCO, 2.LO filters and multiplier and
1.LO fractional N system as well as both 1. and 2. DSC LO PLL and VCO. The Master oscillator generates a
17.8176 MHz reference signal which is distributed to the local Synthesizer LO sub-circuits.
The appropriate frequencies for the MF/HF transceiver are then generated.
The DSC Watch receiver is built up as a Double Super Heterodyne Receiver using intermediate frequencies
of 30.155 MHz and 455 kHz.
After frequency conversion to 455 kHz the signal is fed to 455 kHz IF2 AGC amplifier before led to final detection
/ conversion to 1700 Hz.
The Signal is filtered out by 1700 Hz Audio filter and afterwards led to limiting amplifier thus creating the DSC

output for further processing.
The Receiver Signal Path also includes antenna supply and receiver protection circuitry.
A RF splitter divides the DSC antenna signal between the Watch Receiver and the Main Receiver, which uses
the signal in telex mode.
The Synthesizer used for the Watch Receiver consists of the following sub circuits:
 An integer type PLL is used for creating the DSC LO1 signal. The PLL resolution is 2 kHz and after division
by 4 the final DSC LO1 resolution is 500 Hz. Three separate VCO´ s are used for covering the necessary
frequency range. A 14.85 MHz TCXO is used for reference for the PLL.
 A doubler Circuit submitted to the 14,85 MHz reference signal is used for DSC LO2 signal thus creating
29.70 MHz.
 A 14.6144 MHz TCXO divided by 32 thus creating 456.7 kHz is used for DSC LO3 signal.

3.5 RX/EX signal path module 60-122880
The RX signal path includes protection, pre-selection, mixers, IF amplifiers, filter bank, demodulator, squelch
and audio. The RX signal path has Automatic Gain Control. The RX signal path performs the handling of the
received antenna signal and delivers an AF signal, via the Control/Intercon module where the AF signal is
converted from an unbalanced to a balanced signal, to the Control Unit.
The RX signal path also includes a DSC receiver signal path, which uses the MF/HF signal path, until the last
down conversion. DSC part includes a mixer, base band filter and hard limiter. During DSC reception, the DSC
part overrules the normal MF/HF reception.
The EX signal path includes AF compressor, modulator, filter bank, mixers and EX output amplifiers. The EX
signal path has Automatic Loop Control. The EX signal path generates the modulated RF signal, adjusted to
correct level - ALC adjusted signal, to the Power Amplifier.
The RX / EX signal path is controlled by the Control/Intercon module and receives its injection signal from
the Synth./DSC WR module.

3.6 PA and Filters module 60-122881
The PA and Filters module includes PA drivers, PA-stage, protection circuits, bias circuits, key circuit and five
low-pass filters with relays and relay drivers. The PA and Filters receive the modulated RF input signal from
the RX/EX Signal Path and delivers the amplified and filtered output signal to the TX/RX connector via a
receive/transmit relay on the Control/Intercon module.
The low-pass filters remove the unwanted harmonic frequencies from the PA signal. The Filpeak and PAprotec
outputs are monitoring signals for the Control/Intercon module. The driver and final power amplifier stages
are galvanically isolated on input and output as they are supplied directly from the 24 V DC input. The selection of low-pass filter is controlled by the Control/Intercon module.
The PA filters cover the frequency ranges:

Keep antenna feed-through insulators clean and dry. Check the condition of antenna installation. 3. Wipe off with a clean cloth. 4. Take out the air filters from the cover.2 Cleaning the Air filter (500 W Transciver only) .Chapter 4 Service 4. Remove the air filter cover from the buttom of the transceiver unit by gently pushing towards right and then pulling it out from the cabinet. Ensure that no objects are obstructing the free airflow through the cooling channels of the Transceiver Unit and keep the units free of dust accumulation to prevent overheating.1 Preventive maintenance Due to the modern design of the transceiver preventive maintenance can be reduced to a minimum provided the equipment is correctly installed. The transceiver unit uses 2 fans to cool all circuitry inside the unit. 2. The battery must always be fully charged and should be topped up frequently with distilled water (liquid should be 5 to 10 mm above the plates). To keep the cooling air clean an air filter is placed in front of each fan. These air filters should be cleaned frequently. To ensure maximum performance and minimum repair trouble we recommend you to follow the below stated headlines for preventive maintenance. 1. The condition of the battery should be checked at frequent intervals. Sticky dirt may be removed using a cloth with a weak soap solution.
