Radios A and B will always be shown as connected as their interface is located
on the MCS. Based upon our stated parameters in Para 2.10.1. the following will
be shown on the display:
1 c ,
2 c ,
3 c ,
4 c ,
A c ,
B c ,
C c ,
D c ,
r c , d o n e .
Immediately after d o n e the display will show A v h f , with the "vhf"
portion blinking. Depressing the CHANGE button allows changing "vhf" to "hf"
and back for each radio that appears. Once "vhf" or "hf" is selected, momentarily
holding the PROGRAM switch in the STORE position will program it into the
System Configuration memory. Upon release of the SYSTEM switch d o n e
will appear, than B v h f . Repeat the procedures described for A v h f .
C v h f , than D v h f will then appear requiring the same procedures.
Upon completion of storing the radios into the configuration memory the display
will show t e s t , p a s s , then A L L . If the SYSTEM switch
was set on PROG 1, PROG 2, or PROG 3 during the System Configuration
procedures then P 1
, P 2
, or P 3
will be shown,
respectively. The MCS is now ready to program the crewstation FFCSs for radio
access. If desired, programming need not be done at this time. Turning the
MCS off will not affect the System Configuration memory.
The following procedures are for programming
FFCS radio access for PROG 1 only. If PROG 2
or PROG 3 are utilized the same procedures
b. PROGRAM MEMORY
After following the System Configuration procedures above place the SYSTEM
switch on PROG 1. The PROGRAM switch should already be set on FUNCTION
if programming immediately follows the System Configuration procedures. If not
place in on this setting.
1. Programming 1Ar to memory.
a. Set PROGRAM switch to FUNCTION. Display shows 1 A * * .
Depress CHANGE button until display shows 1 A r *
b. Turn PROGRAM switch to the STORE position momentarily and release.
1 A r * is stored to program memory.
2. Programming 2Art to memory.
a. Set PROGRAM switch to STATION. Display shows 1 A r * .
Depress CHANGE button until 1 changes to 2. Display will show 2 A * * .
