frequency of the frequency generator, which is then
fed to a servomotor in the indicator. This servomotor
positions the GND SPEED dial to indicate the ground
speed. The mode switch should be set to the LAND
position when the aircraft is overland, and to the SEA
position when over the sea.
With the mode switch in the TEST position, you
should get the following indications after a 1-minute
MEMORY light is off.
GND SPEED dial indicates 121±5 knots.
DRIFT angle dial indicates 0±2°.
The memory light indicates that the audio from
both radiated patterns is lost. This means that the
system cannot provide accurate information. The two
indicators will be locked at the present readings until
the RT starts to receive good signals.
