Maintenance on the transceiver should be performed in the following sequence.
Performance Test - Conducted to check the overall performance of the transceiver. Should be performed prior to
the sale/installation of the radio and prior to any corrective maintenance.
Alignment/Adjustment - Conducted if the transceiver fails the Performance Test and/or a critical electrical
component has been replaced in the transceiver. In addition, SCC recommends that the radio be returned
whenever maintenance is performed on it.
Troubleshooting - Isolates a fault in the transceiver.
Remove the covers from the radio to obtain access to the test and adjustment points. Connect the radio to a suitable DC
source (+13.8 VDC ±20%). Test equipment hookup for alignment procedure is illustrated in Figures 6 and 9. Alignment
reference points locations are illustrated in Figures 7 and 8.
The following maintenance procedure is supplied assuming the repair technician has access to the following test
