RC-2 REMOTE TUNING SYSTEM FOR THE ALEXLOOP HAMPACK

Alexloop RC-2 remote tuning system

AlexLoop HamPack capacitor motor drive and RC-2 Remote Control

In response to many requests and inquiries received from the users and would-be adopters of the AlexLoop HamPack, we have designed and now offer the RC-2 remote tuning system.

The RC-2’s design allows the AlexLoop HamPack owner the optimum useability experience.

The larger knob on the RC-2 remote tuning box allows the operator to choose the band/frequency to operate on and the direction he needs to turn the knob to go to higher or lower band/frequency.

The tuning speed control knob is located below the larger tuning knob.

A higher tuning speed is useful to locate a desired band/frequency quickly. Sudden increase of the band noise indicates that the operator is near the best tuning point for transmission and reception.

The operator then should select a continuos carrier mode (AM or FM) on the transceicer and press the PTT and hold it. (Some modern transceivers have a XMIT button to generate a carrier signal.)

Now, by using lower tuning speed, turn the tuning knob right and left until the LED shines the brightest. The transceiver will now show the lowest SWR. Release the PTT and choose the mode (SSB, CW, FM, AM or digital mode) you wish to operate in.

Important: AlexLoop RC-2 Remote Control is a precision electronic equipment. Although it is made to last a long time it is necessary to take special care and never put a heavy object on it.
