c. The meter should indicate between 30% and 70% of full scale. If the reading
fails to reach 30% or exceeds 70% of full scale, the following procedures may be
used to check the applicable stages and components.
d. Readjust amplifier board control (3R53) for a meter reading of 50% of full
e . Visually check the meter coil for a sticky movement and/or continuity. If
d e f e c t i v e , replace.
f . Using the DC multimeter set to DC volts, measure the DC voltages at all
applicable transistor stages and compare values to those as shown on schematic
9. The synchronous demodulator's transistors, 3Q7 and 3Q8, may be checked by
substitution. Transformers 3T1 and 3T2, if suspected of being faulty, should be
c a r e f u l l y unsoldered and removed from the circuit board. Their winding continuity
should be checked by using the DC multimeter set to ohms.
h. Disconnect 3TP10 from 3TP8 and reconnect link wire 3W3 from 3TP8 and 3TP9.
Disconnect 3TP3 from 3TP13.
i . Disconnect multimeter.
NARROW BAND PRE-AMPLIFIER
a. With the voltmeter properly shielded (see paragraph 5-2) switch to the 0.001V
f u l l scale range position. Connect the equipment as shown in figure 5-1. Adjust the
b. Locate on the amplifier board, link 3W3. Unsolder one (1) end of 3W3 from
c. Connect the oscilloscope to 3TP8. Disconnect oscillator from probe. Adjust
the SET REF control for minimum amplitude reading on the oscilloscope; the wave-
shape should agree with the value as shown on the schematic diagram, figure F0-1.
d. Reconnect the oscillator to the probe. With 1mV applied to the probe,
measure the waveshape. It should agree with the value as shown on the schematic.
I m p r o p e r shielding or zeroing may result in large errors.
e. I f this check reveals a faulty condition, the following procedure may be
used to check each pre-amplifier stage.
f . Using the DC multimeter set to DC volts, measure the DC voltages at each
stage's transistor (3Q10, 3Q11 and 3Q12) and compare to those as shown on the
schematic diagram, figure F0-1.
g. With the 1mV signal applied, measure with the oscilloscope the gain of each
stage. A typical gain figure is 10:1. Should the gain check reveal a defective

DC multimeter set to ohms.
i . Reconnect 3W3 to 3TP8.
j . Disconnect oscilloscope and DC multimeter.
a. With the voltmeter properly shielded (see Paragraph 5-2), verify the RANGE
s w i t c h is set to the 0.001V full scale range position.
c. To check the modulator's chopping action, deliberately feed a 30mV, 200KHz
s i g n a l to the probe. With the oscilloscope set to a low level sensitivity, observe
the waveshape at 3Q9's gate. If a square-wave is not produced or fails to diminish
when the signal source is de-energized, t h e modulator is probably faulty. If
f a u l t y , replace.
