UHF MODES OF OPERATION
Figure 1-10 shows a simplified block diagram of the
The UHF-1 radio set provides the following modes
of operation: plain voice, cipher voice, ADF navigation,
plain voice guard, cipher voice guard, and secure
SATCOM. The UHF-2 radio set provides plain voice,
cipher voice, sonobuoy command, wide-band audio,
plain voice guard, cipher voice guard, link 11 plain data,
link 11 cipher data, TTY plain data, TTY cipher data,
and IACS data.
Operation of these radio sets is supported by various
equipment on board the aircraft. Mode selection for
UHF-1 is accomplished by the control box and the A344
voice selector. Mode selection for UHF-2 is
