Analog Communications Training Systems



The Analog Communications Training Systems form a comprehensive program that enables instructors to teach the principles of analog communications, both in theory and in practice, using a variety of training environments.

The Analog Communications Training Systems allow students to perform voltage and signal measurements, alignment calibration, and signal flow tracing. Students can build a communications system by connecting a generator to a receiver using a coaxial cable, which becomes the communication channel (or link). Coaxial cables eliminate radiation and noise interference. If a wireless system is desired, antennas can be used in place of the coaxial cable. Tests are performed on the complete system to ensure proper operation according to system standards and specifications. Noise can also be introduced to simulate atmospheric disturbances and to provide realistic signal-to-noise ratio evaluation.

Once a communication system is set up, students can study such general system functions as interaction between individual units caused by circuit loading, matching, and tuning. A Spectrum Analyzer, Model 9405, allows students to observe and analyze base-band signals, as well as radio and intermediate frequency (RF and IF) signals in the frequency domain. Power for each module is distributed through self-aligning connectors when the modules are stacked. The Power Supply/Dual Audio Amplifier, Model 9401, is the base module of the systems.
