Automated Net Control Device (ANCD)
DESCRIPTION OF EQUIPMENT
Army Command, Control and Communications requires the development of leaders with the right combination of skills essential to the Army's readiness for future operational missions. The challenge is to provide those avenues to establish and maintain the individual or unit's needs to communicate.
ESTABLISHING COMMUNICATIONS 1. PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION 2. ENTER THE NET 3. TRANSMIT A RADIO MESSAGE
PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION 4 MAJOR STEPS PRESET CONTROLS TEST RT CIRCUITS TEST TRANSMITTER SET BATTERY LIFE CONDITIONS
1. Turn Function (FTCN) to OFF.2. Turn RF Power (RF) to LO. PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION PRESET CONTROLS
3. Turn the Channel (CHAN) to MAN. 4. Turn the MODE to SC. PRESET CONTROLS PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
5. Turn the COMSEC to CT. 6. Turn the Volume (VOL) to MIDRANGE. PRESET CONTROLS PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
6. Turn the DIM to MIDRANGE. 7. Turn FTCN switch to "TST". PRESET CONTROLS PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
TEST RT CIRCUITS 1. Set FCTN to Z-FH. PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
TEST RT CIRCUITS 2. Display shows GOOD. PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
3. Key handset twice to clear COMSEC Alarm. TEST RT CIRCUITS PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
4. Turn FTCN switch to TST. TEST RT CIRCUITS PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
5. Display should cycle in the sequence shown. TEST RT CIRCUITS PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
6. Signal strength cycles from LO to HI. TEST RT CIRCUITS PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
1. Set FCTN to SQ ON. TEST TRANSMITTER PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
3. SIG Marker must be in position shown, plus or minus one position. TEST TRANSMITTER 2. Key handset. PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
SET BATTERY LIFE CONDITION Use when installing a new battery or FTCN switch is set to OFF PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
1. Set FTCN to LD 2. Press BATT/CALL and CLR buttons. SET BATTERY LIFE CONDITION PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
3. Enter battery life condition numbers (if battery has previously been used) and press STO to start clock. SET BATTERY LIFE CONDITION PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
A new battery will be set to 00. A used battery should have the battery life condition numbers written on the side of it. SET BATTERY LIFE CONDITION PLACE THE RADIO INTO OPERATION
ENTER THE NET PREPARE RADIOLOAD FREQUENCIES LOAD COMSEC/ FH DATA
ENTER THE NET PREPARE RADIO 1. Turn FCTN switch to "LD". 2. Turn COMSEC switch to "CT".
ENTER THE NET LOAD FREQUENCIES Set the RT Controls: 1. Set COMSEC to PT. 2. Set MODE to SC.
3. Set FCTN to Z-FH, TST, and then to LD. 4. Set CHAN to MAN ENTER THE NET LOAD FREQUENCIES Set the RT Controls:
1. Press FREQ - display shows 30000. ENTER THE NET LOAD FREQUENCIES To Load the Frequency: 2. Press CLR - display shows _ _ _ _ _. Enter the frequency. 3. Press STO.
Repeat each step for each frequency needed. ENTER THE NET To Load the Frequency: LOAD FREQUENCIES 4. Set FCTN to SQ ON.
ENTER THE NET Load COMSEC/FH Data 1. COMSEC should be at CT. 2. FCTN should be at LD. 3. MODE should be at FH.
ENTER THE NET Load COMSEC/FH Data 4. CHAN should be at MAN. 5. Press the DATA (4) button to turn DATA OFF.
6. Turn on the Automated Net Control Device (ANCD). ENTER THE NET Load COMSEC/FH Data
ENTER THE NET Load COMSEC/FH Data 7. In the display, select RADIO. 8. Select SEND.
ENTER THE NET Load COMSEC/FH Data 9. Select send to RADIO. 10. Select ICOM.
