LOADING FH SYNC TIME BY ERF.
a. Prepare NCS radio to receive an ERF.
b. Request, or stand by for, an ERF from higher level NCS.
Store ERF in one channel (eg, Chan 2). Read "HF xxx" and blink in display.
Press STO, read "STOW", press 2. ERF is now stored in Channel 2.
Now store ERF in own unit channel (eg, Chan 1). Set MODE to
CHAN to 2. Press LOAD, read "HLD _". Press 2, read "HFxxx". Press STO,
read "STO_", press 1. ERF from higher NCS is now also stored in unit operat-
e. Change net ID of ERF in Chan 1 to that designated for own unit (either by
keypad or use of fill device).
NCS radio is now ready for own unit net opening. By loading sync
time by ERF, the higher net, your own NCS radio, and your unit opera-
tors now all have the same sync time. This fact makes cross-net
communications easy. This same procedure can also be used for
LOADING FH SYNC TIME BY KEYPAD. If RT FCTN had been set to
functions must be set manually or by ERF; otherwise, the clock will not start.
