Abstract : This report describes the design, construction, and checkout of a radio and telephone multi-mode communications hub. This unit is to serve as a surrogate for a command, control, and communications van which is to be used in support of a special series of testing at a remote site. This unit is assembled in a military four-wheel van and has a crew of a commander and three operators. Radio communications monitoring can be performed in all popular modes of transmission from 50 KHz to 2 GHz and transmission can be performed on selected frequencies in the 40-meter, 6-meter, and 2-meter bands. Both voice and digital (teletype, packet, facsimile, etc.) communications are supported. (Author).
