Glossary of Terms

The following terms are used in this documentation.

E and M Signalling Refers to PTT and the squelch indication signalling between a radio site and the control equipment. E represents ‘Ear’ (what is heard, or received) and M represents ‘Mouth’ (what is sent). Therefore:

A PTT signal sent from the control equipment is referred to as the M signal; the same signal at the transmitter is referred to as the E signal

A squelch indication at the receiver is referred to as the M signal; the same signal at the control equipment is referred to as the E signal.

Squelch Squelch (also referred to as Mute in older receivers) is a circuit function that:

Mutes a receiver’s audio output during periods of no reception

Mutes a receiver’s audio output when signals weaker than the squelch threshold are received.

Phantom Keying Phantom keying is when the keying potential is superimposed on the audio lines.

Introduction

The Park Air T6MC controller provides a remote operating position for Park Air radios. The controller can be sited up to 1 km from the controlled equipment. At the controller transmissions are made using a microphone, with integral PTT switch, plugged into the front panel; reception is monitored through the internal loudspeaker. The radio equipment’s operating mode, or the channel frequency, cannot be changed from a controller. A tape recorder output is available from the controller.

The controller is available as a desktop controller (Fig 1-1) or as a single or dual rack mount controller(s) (Fig 1-2). If a single controller is used in the rack mount the unused controller position is fitted with a blanking plate.

Configurations

The controller can be configured as detailed below.

Keying Transmitters with External PTT Up to four controllers can be connected in parallel and used as the remote operating position(s) for radios using external PTT. The controlled radios can be a transmitter/receiver pair or transceiver, or a main and standby configuration. A 3-wire PTT, transmit audio plus ground, and a 2-wire receive audio plus ground connection is required as shown in Fig 7-1.

The controller’s intercom facility must not be used in these configurations.

Keying Transmitters with Phantom PTT Up to four controllers can be connected in parallel and used as the remote operating position(s) for radios using phantom keying. The controlled radios can be a transmitter/receiver pair or transceiver, or a main and standby configuration. A 2-wire transmit audio plus ground and a 2-wire receive audio plus ground connection is required as shown in Fig 7-2. The keying potential is superimposed on the transmit audio lines to provide phantom PTT.

An intercom facility is available from the controller's front panel. This facility allows an operator to speak to other controllers without keying the transmitter.
