    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    For best VISUAL small target detection (PIW, <25ft boat, or raft) altitudes below _____ are recommended. 

    • A.

      200

    • B.

      500

    • C.

      700

    • D.

      800

    Correct Answer
    D. 800
    Explanation
    For best visual small target detection, altitudes below 800 are recommended. This means that flying at altitudes lower than 800 feet provides better visibility and increases the chances of detecting small targets such as a PIW (person in water), a boat of less than 25 feet, or a raft. Higher altitudes may reduce visibility and make it harder to spot these small targets.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Best probability of detection in high winds and high sea states are in a ______ radar to target perspective. 

    • A.

      Crosswind/upwind

    • B.

      Crosswind/downwind

    • C.

      Downwind/upwind

    • D.

      Hurricane

    Correct Answer
    B. Crosswind/downwind
    Explanation
    In high winds and high sea states, the best probability of detection is achieved when the radar is positioned in a crosswind/downwind perspective to the target. This means that the radar is located perpendicular to the wind direction and slightly behind the target. This positioning allows the radar to effectively detect and track the target, as it minimizes the interference caused by the wind and sea conditions.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What is the Radio Communication Failure code for transponders?

    • A.

      7700

    • B.

      7300

    • C.

      7600

    • D.

      6666

    Correct Answer
    C. 7600
    Explanation
    The Radio Communication Failure code for transponders is 7600. This code is used by pilots to indicate a communication failure with air traffic control. When a pilot experiences radio communication issues, they will squawk 7600 on their transponder, which alerts air traffic control that they are unable to communicate via radio. This allows air traffic control to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of the aircraft and other airspace users.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Flying at low altitudes and constant heading changes will impact the ARC-210's ability to maintain order wire handshake?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    • C.

      Maybe

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Flying at low altitudes and constant heading changes can cause disruptions in the ARC-210's ability to maintain order wire handshake. Order wire handshake is a communication process that ensures proper transmission and reception of signals between the aircraft and ground stations. Low altitudes and frequent heading changes can lead to signal interference, loss of connection, or reduced signal strength, thereby impacting the ARC-210's ability to maintain order wire handshake. Therefore, the statement "True" indicates that these factors can indeed affect the ARC-210's order wire handshake.
