The first things that we will cover on the AN/PSC-5 radio set are the SL-3 components and someof the ancillary devices.a. RT -1672/U(C) b. LOS Antennac. Battery Boxd. H-250 Handsete. W-1 (AN/PSC-5 TO KL-43)f. W-2 (AN/PSC-5 TO AN/PSC-2)g. W-3 (AN/PSC-5 TO DMDG)h h. W-4 (AN/PSC-5 TO AN/PSC-5 RETRANSMISSION)i. W-5 (AN/PSC-5 TO SINCGARS RETRANSMISSION) j. W-6 (AN/PSC-5 TO SATELLITE ANTENNA)k. W-7 (AN/PSC-5 TO AN/PSC-5 CLONING) using unit resposibility. 2. The antenna AS-4326/P is using unit responsibility, but most radio sets are coming with thisantenna. When using this antenna the two extensions are not needed unless your signal is weak.The antenna will come with the following components.a.base element (provides 6 dB gain) b. extension kit 2 each (each extension provides 2.5 dB gain)NOTE: Total antenna gain is 11db.3. Controls and Indicators (Front panel)a. Antenna Connector (J3) (Connection of Los or satellite antenna.) b. Display (LCD back lit, auto shut off)c. Keypad (Push button numerical and function keys)d. Aux. Connector (J1) (Connection of external devices)e. Audio Connector (J2) (Connection of handset)2  f. Volume Control (Controls received volume)g. Dim Control (Control of the light in the display field)h. Squelch Control (Control the rushing noise)i. Fill Connector (For connection of fill device) j. Mode Switch (J6) (8 position switch controlling certain function)1. RMT- used for remote operations.i 2. OFF- turns the power off but no entered memory is lost. j 3. PT- plain text operation.k 4. CT- cipher text operation.l 5. F-1-fill position for TEK/KEK.m 6. F-2-fill position for order wire keys.n 7. UPD- up date position for up dating TEK up to 255 times.o 8. Z- deletes all cryptographic keys.k. Rear Connectors-The connectors on the rear panel are for connection of the two batteries.4. Capabilities and Featuresa. Menu-Driven Operation-TM has complete menu tree.(1) Menus shown on the Display(2) Display shows 4 line with 20 characters per line(3) Menus scroll b. Internal Diagnosis (BIT)- Performs it’s own self-test and if there is a problem it will tellyou where and what.c. Embedded COMSEC-Simulates the KG-84, VINSON, ANDVT.d. Interoperability Features- can be used with numerous external devices and compatible withall man pack SATCOM radios.e. Preset Mode: - The RT will store up to 19 presets.f. Memory:(1) Radio will retain necessary information in Non Volatile Memory (NVM).(2) The Radio will retain COMSEC and Order wire keys for a minimum of 2.5minutes after primary power batteries are removed provided the internal Hold-Up-Batteries (HUB) are sufficiently charged. NOTE: The radio set must have be connected to a power source for a minimum of 24 hoursto ensure the Hub battery gets fully charged. The Mode switch should be in theOFF position before removing the primary batteries to prevent damage to the RT.g. Remote Control: NOTE: The radio is capable of being remotely controlled by the MXF-239 RemoteControl Unit, However, it was not purchased by the Marine Corps.h. Operating Modes(1) LOS (Line of sight)3  a. Scanning which is limited to plain text and 2 channels.(2) Beacon-used for signaling only used when needed, it will drain the batteries quickly(3) SATCOM(a) 5 kHz Narrow band(b) 25 kHz Wide band(4) DAMA(a) 5 kHz Narrow band(b) 25 kHz Wide band5. Spitfire Characteristicsa. Power Requirements(1) Input(a) 21 to 32 VDC(b) Two BA-5590/BB-590/BB-390(2) Power Consumption(a) 0.3 to 0.6 Amps Receive(b) 1.9 to 4.25 Amps Transmit(c) Dependent on mode of operation certain modes use more power (3) Warm-up Time - 30 seconds (10 seconds when BIT aborted) you should alwaysrun bit test. b. Frequency Range(1) Overall Frequency Range - 30.000 to 399.995 MHz. Even though the range is 30to 399.975 the radio won’t let you put in the frequencies assigned to the civilian populace. Below are the frequencies that the radio will let you assign.(2) LOS(a) 30.000 to 87.975 MHz - FM(b) 116.000 to 129.975 MHz - AM(c) 130.000 to 148.975 MHz - AM/FM(d) 149.000 to 173.975 MHz - FM/FSK (e) 225.000 to 399.975 MHz - AM/FM/FSK (3) SATCOM(a) 225.000 to 399.995 MHz(b) 239 predefined channels (As listed in the TM appendix I)(4) DAMA(a) 225.000 to 399.995 MHz4
