Abstract : A modification program was initiated for the ATCBI Transmitter Site equipment in accordance with Federal Aviation Agency Specification FAA-R-1404a. This specification required certain operating characteristics be altered and other operational capabilities be added to the ATCBI-3 Transmitter Site Equipment Group. Maximum transmitter output power was increased, side-lobe suppression pulse generation and monitoring circuits were added, three-mode interlace operation was added, output rf switching between a directional and omnidirectional antenna was added, ancillary trigger outputs were added, and certain local control functions were deleted. This equipment was successfully modified to meet the full requirements of specification FAA-R-1404a, and the end result of this program was a modification kit suitable for field installation in the basic equipment.
