INTRODUCTION
The MOTOROI,A P-8501-A and P-850I-A-24V
Portable Test Sets ate universal instruments for
testing MOTOROLA radio transmitters and receivers. By their compact, portable design they
lend themselves readily to fieldor bench applications. Specifically, these instrurnents are engineered for use with MOTOROLA "RESEARCH"
Line communication equipment. With the adapter
cables suppliedthey may be used to test and align
other lines of MOTOROLA equipment as well'
Complete testing and alignment may be accomplishld for all MOTOROLA 25-50 tnc', 72-76
mc. and l5Z-174 mc. frequency range equipment
with the aid of P-8501-A Series Test Sets' For
450-4?0 mc. "RESEARCH'r Line equipment, the
P-8501 -Ais applicable only for metering purPoses
and is not to be used as a signal soutce for alignment.
U
Alignment procedures as described in the
discussions to fo11ow, will apply primarily to
25-50 rnc., 7Z-76 ms. and l5Z-I74 mc' equipment. For alignment of 450-470 mc' equipment
refer to the comprehensive alignment procedure
as outlined in the associate insturction manual
for the equipment being tested.

DESCRIPTION
The P-850I-A PortaLle Test Set is designed
primarily foruse with MOTOROLA equipmentoperating from 6 VDC, lZ vDC, and l17 VAC pri-
mary power sources. The P-850I -A-Z4V Portable
Test Set is especially suited for use in testing
MOTOR3LA equiprnent operating from 24 VDC
power sources. The P-8501-A-24V and P-8501-A
Test Sets differ only with respect to the value of
a multiplier resistor used in the DC transrnitter
filarnent-control voltage metering circuit' This
provision allows'ron-scale'r meter readings of Z4
VDC transmitter filament voltages with the
P-850I -A-Z4V Model. This model Test Set is
identical inall other functions tothe P-850I-A and
may be used for complete testing of MOTOROLA
equipment operating from any voltage sou!ce'
However, 6 VDC and l2 VDC measurements with
the P-8501 .?--Z V will not produce meter deflections of the magnitude attained with the P-8501-A
and therefore is not to be preferred for specific
6 vDc, lz vDc and Il? vAc MOTOROLA equipment applications.
The test set incorporates a 0-50 microampere
2000 ohm meter, whichwithtlee frontpanel selec-
and associated adapter plugs, provides
metering for all transmitter and receiver circuits

Quieting signal isthat input signal necessary
to reduce the output noise' at the speaker, Z0 db'
This measurement is to be made in a well shielded
location in the absence of extraneous noises'
This measurement is important, in that it
indicates in one measurement that the signal-tonoise ratio ofthe receiver RF stage is satisfactory
and that there is sufficient gain, i. e. that amplifier tubes are working norrnallY.
The actual measurement is made by observ-
ing the noise voltage at the speaker without any
carrier atthe antenna. Then sufficient carrier is
introduced atthe antenna to reduce the noise output voltage lo If L0 its former value.
To measure the quieting signal accurately on
25-50 mc. , 7Z-76 mc. and l5Z-174 mc. receivers
a Model 80 Signal Generator or equivalent and a

Peaking Generator OPeration
-*-
The peaking generator provides a crystal
controlled source of RF signal for aligning most
MOTOROLA receivers. The peaking generatbr is
designed to use the transmitter crystal for operation in the 25-50, 7Z-76 and 152-174 megacycle
bands. The stages are broadly tuned and therefore the output will be at all harmonics of the
crystal frequency.

The P-7208 RF Dummy Load is a radio freresistive load unit which is used in conjunction with the P-8501-A Test Set to measure
transrnitter RF power output. The unit has a
standing wave ratio of less than I.2 over a frequency range of 25 mc. to L74 mc. and has a nominal load impedance of 50 ohms. The RF power
capability of the dummy loadis Z5 watts for continuous operation and 60 watts for intermittent

The P-8501-A may be used to align the final
IF of SENSICONand UNI-CIIANNEL Receivers in
all frequency ranges if an additional 455 kc. or
45? kc. i.s purchased for use with the peaking
generator.
If a SENSICON receiveristobe aligned a 455

use with the MOTOROLA Portable equipments.
To rneasure transmitter RF power output:
The following procedure shouldbe used when
aligning the Znd IF of SENSICON and UNI-CIIAN-
