### In a frequency-shift radar system, the doppler principle makes it possible to instantaneously sense and measure

• A.

Altitude and ground track

• B.

Target elevation and speed

• C.

Ground speed and drift angle

C. Ground speed and drift angle
Explanation
The doppler principle in a frequency-shift radar system allows for the measurement of ground speed and drift angle. The doppler principle states that the frequency of a wave will change if the source of the wave is moving relative to the observer. In a radar system, this principle is used to measure the change in frequency of the reflected wave from a moving target. By analyzing this change in frequency, the radar system can determine the ground speed (speed of the target relative to the ground) and the drift angle (angle between the target's direction of motion and the ground track).

Rate this question:

### In a frequency-shift radar system, what is the relationship between a transmitter/receiver and an aircraft when no frequency shift between them can be measured?

• A.

They are a constant distance away form each other

• B.

The aircraft is not reflection any of the radar pulses

• C.

The aircraft is flying away from the transmitter/receiver

A. They are a constant distance away form each other
Explanation
When no frequency shift between the transmitter/receiver and the aircraft can be measured in a frequency-shift radar system, it indicates that they are a constant distance away from each other. This means that there is no change in the frequency of the radar signal as it is reflected back from the aircraft. This could occur when the aircraft is stationary or moving directly towards or away from the transmitter/receiver, resulting in a constant distance between them. It suggests that there is no relative motion between the two entities.

• B.

The aircraft is flying towards the transmitter receiver

• C.

The aircraft is flying away from the transmitter receiver

B. The aircraft is flying towards the transmitter receiver
Explanation
When the received frequency is higher than the transmitted frequency in a frequency-shift radar system, it indicates that the aircraft is flying towards the transmitter/receiver. This is because when an object is moving towards the radar system, the frequency of the reflected radar pulses increases due to the Doppler effect. Therefore, the higher received frequency suggests that the aircraft is approaching the transmitter/receiver.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### In a frequency-shift radar system, what is the relationship between a transmitter/receiver and an aircraft when the received frequency is lower than the transmitted frequency?

• A.

The aircraft is not reflecting any of the RDR pulses

• B.

The aircraft is flying towards the RT

• C.

The aircraft is flying away from the RT

C. The aircraft is flying away from the RT
Explanation
When the received frequency is lower than the transmitted frequency in a frequency-shift radar system, it indicates that the aircraft is flying away from the radar transmitter (RT). This is because the frequency shift occurs due to the Doppler effect, where the frequency of the signal changes based on the relative motion between the transmitter/receiver and the aircraft. A lower received frequency suggests that the aircraft is moving away from the radar, causing a decrease in the frequency of the reflected signal.

Explanation
The dimensions of a waveguide determine its frequency and power-handling capabilities. The frequency of a waveguide is determined by its dimensions because different dimensions allow for the propagation of different frequencies. The power-handling capabilities of a waveguide are also influenced by its dimensions as they determine the maximum power that can be transmitted through the waveguide without causing damage or significant power loss. Therefore, the dimensions of a waveguide play a crucial role in determining its frequency range and power-handling capabilities.

Rate this question:

### The voltage standing-wave ration is determined by comparing the radars's

• A.

Reflected power to the TX power

• B.

Reflected power to the receiver's sensitivity

• C.

Transmitter power to the receiver's sensitivity

A. Reflected power to the TX power
Explanation
The voltage standing-wave ratio (VSWR) is a measure of how efficiently power is transferred from the transmitter to the antenna. It is determined by comparing the reflected power (power that is not absorbed by the antenna and is instead reflected back) to the TX power (power transmitted by the transmitter). A higher VSWR indicates a greater amount of power being reflected back, which can lead to inefficiencies and potential damage to the transmitter. Therefore, the correct answer is to compare the reflected power to the TX power.

Explanation
In a frequency-modulated signal, the amount of separation between the sideband frequencies is equal to the carrier frequency. This means that the sideband frequencies, which are produced as a result of modulation, are located symmetrically around the carrier frequency. The carrier frequency remains unchanged, while the sidebands are shifted in frequency according to the modulation. Therefore, the separation between the sideband frequencies is directly proportional to the carrier frequency.

### In a signal-sideband system, which mode of operation transmits both sidebands and deletes the carrier?

• A.

Independent sideband

• B.

Singe-sideband transmission

• C.

Amplitude-modulated equivalent

A. Independent sideband
Explanation
In a signal-sideband system, the independent sideband mode of operation transmits both sidebands and deletes the carrier. This means that the carrier signal, which is the unmodulated signal in an amplitude modulation system, is removed from the transmitted signal. The independent sideband mode allows for efficient use of bandwidth by transmitting only the necessary information contained in the sidebands, without the need for the carrier signal.

Rate this question:

### In a single-sideband transmitter, the balance modulator's output consists of the

• A.

Carrier and upper and lower sidebands

• B.

Upper and lower sidebands

• C.

Lower sideband only

B. Upper and lower sidebands
Explanation
In a single-sideband transmitter, the balance modulator's output consists of the carrier and upper and lower sidebands. This means that the modulator generates two additional signals, one above the carrier frequency (upper sideband) and one below the carrier frequency (lower sideband). These sidebands contain the information that needs to be transmitted, while the carrier frequency helps in the demodulation process at the receiver end. By transmitting only the sidebands and not the carrier, single-sideband modulation allows for more efficient use of bandwidth and power.

• C.

Discriminator and local oscillator circuit

B. Special detector and carrier reinsertions oscillator
Explanation
The basic difference between the single sideband (SSB) receiver and the conventional superheterodyne receiver is that the SSB receiver uses a special detector and carrier reinsertion oscillator. This means that instead of using a discriminator and local oscillator circuit like the conventional superheterodyne receiver, the SSB receiver has a special detector that is capable of extracting the desired sideband signal and a carrier reinsertion oscillator that helps to reconstruct the carrier signal. This allows the SSB receiver to effectively demodulate and recover the original signal, while eliminating the unnecessary sideband and carrier components.

Rate this question:

• 34.

### A major draw back in using a single-sideband (ssb) receiver over and amplitude-modulated (am) receiver is the

• A.

Need for critical frequency stability

• B.

Ssb receiver has a narrower bandpass

• C.

Am receiver requires only one oscillator circuit

A. Need for critical frequency stability
Explanation
The major drawback in using a single-sideband (SSB) receiver over an amplitude-modulated (AM) receiver is the need for critical frequency stability. This means that the SSB receiver requires a more precise and stable frequency in order to properly demodulate the signal. In contrast, an AM receiver only requires one oscillator circuit, which makes it less demanding in terms of frequency stability. Additionally, the SSB receiver has a narrower bandpass, which can limit its ability to receive a wide range of frequencies.

### What is the transmitted frequency when a HF radio control is set to 27.5 Mhz, the signal is modulated by a 1000-hz tone, and lower sideband is selected?

• A.

26.500Mhz

• B.

27.499Mhz

• C.

27.501Mhz

B. 27.499Mhz
Explanation
When a HF radio control is set to 27.5 Mhz and modulated by a 1000-hz tone, the lower sideband is selected. Lower sideband modulation involves suppressing the carrier frequency and the upper sideband, leaving only the lower sideband. The transmitted frequency is then calculated by subtracting the modulating frequency (1000 Hz) from the carrier frequency (27.5 Mhz). Therefore, the transmitted frequency would be 27.5 Mhz - 1 kHz = 27.499 Mhz.

### When two signals are received simultaneously on the same operating net, the HAVE QUICK II radio automatically goes into conferencing by

• A.

Resetting the net number for communication

• B.

Setting the receiver to narrowband reception

• C.

Offsetting the second transmitter frequency by 25Khz

C. Offsetting the second transmitter frequency by 25Khz
Explanation
When two signals are received simultaneously on the same operating net, the HAVE QUICK II radio automatically goes into conferencing by offsetting the second transmitter frequency by 25Khz. This means that the second transmitter's frequency is adjusted by 25Khz to avoid interference and allow for clear communication. This offsetting helps to separate the two signals and ensure that they can be received and understood without interference or overlap.

• A.

Is more convenient for maintenance

• B.

Can be used with a remote channel indicator

• C.

Reduces cost by using existing aircraft wiring

C. Reduces cost by using existing aircraft wiring
Explanation
The advantage of the remote HAVE QUICK II configuration over the panel-mount configuration in an aircraft is that it reduces cost by using existing aircraft wiring. This means that there is no need for additional wiring installation, saving both time and money. The remote configuration utilizes the existing wiring infrastructure of the aircraft, making it a more cost-effective option compared to the panel-mount configuration.

### The an/arc-210 receiver/transmitter does not provide

• A.

Half-duplex, two way communications of normal and secure voice amplitude-modulated signals

• B.

Receiver-only mode of operation of normal and secure voice from 108.000 to 117.975 Mhz amplitude modulated

• C.

Transmit-only mode of operation of normal and secure voice from 108.000 to 117.9975 Mhz amplitude modulated

C. Transmit-only mode of operation of normal and secure voice from 108.000 to 117.9975 Mhz amplitude modulated
Explanation
The correct answer is "transmit-only mode of operation of normal and secure voice from 108.000 to 117.9975 Mhz amplitude modulated." This means that the an/arc-210 receiver/transmitter is capable of transmitting normal and secure voice signals in the specified frequency range using amplitude modulation. However, it does not provide the capability for half-duplex, two-way communications or receiver-only mode of operation.
