Abstract:

Effort was made to develop two control systems. One, an automatic remote tuning system for ground-air UHF communications, and the other system, a UHF solid state tuning device utilizing all solid state components. The automatic remote tuning system is a system which tunes an airborne ANARC-34 UHF communications transceiver from the ground through the selective calling ANURA- 22 Discom system. The equipment is completely of solid state construction. The UHF solid state tuning device is a 1750 channel UHF receiver which is tuned by use of varactor diodes. There are no moving parts in the receiver. The frequency synthesizer is also unique in that all frequencies are obtained from a single crystal oscillator and are phase locked to this stable source.
