Hopset data. Hopsets are loaded into the RT by a fill device or ERF.
FH sync time is loaded by transmission from the net controller radio during ERF
or by an NCS using keyboard actions.
MAN frequency is loaded into the MAN channel by keyboard actions. The MAN
channel is primarily used for cold starts.
CUE frequency is loaded into the CUE channel by keyboard actions. It enables
stations not in a FH net to "CUE", or contact the FH net.
* (Note: Lockout set data are normally built-in to hopsets during the computer
generation process. Only rarely will an NCS need to load or ERF a lockout
set. Procedures are addressed in this chapter in case they are required on
rare occaision. If a lockout set is needed, it will be generated at division, corp
or separate brigade level and distributed by fill device.)

RF ENERGY IS PRESENT NEAR THE ANTENNA DURING TRANSMISSION.
MAINTAIN AT LEAST 30 INCHES BETWEEN VEHICULAR ANTENNA AND
PERSONNEL DURING TRANSMISSIONS.
The NCS opens a FH radio net. The procedure used for opening a net Is called
cold start net opening. Check the following table to determine what FH data is
needed before a net opening. If net is to be opened in CT, refer to pages 2-38
Only members designated by the commander need to load CUE fre-
quency. However, NCS and alternate NCS should load CUE.
1. Cold start TSK
2. Lockout set(s) (rarely required)
3. Hopset (s)
4. FH sync time
5. CUE frequency (enables contact
with FH net if commo is lost)
6. MAN frequency
