Abstract : An operator console, a general purpose digital computer and a radio set interface are connected to perform the modulation and demodulation of the differential coherent quadrature phase shift signal used to transmit the digital information over a computer-to-computer radio link. The console is used to initiate communications and to control and monitor link operation. The computer performs all of the signal processing and control functions. The radio set interface performs analogue-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analogue (D/A) conversions for the received and transmitted signals, respectively. The programmable data terminal set (PDTS) also controls the data link operation and sequencing and tests its own performance during operation.
