4. Ensure that the power cable is the correct type, see Power Cords.
Preparation for Use
WARNING
The Agilent 83220A/E and HP/Agilent 8922 Series are Safety Class 1
products (provided with a protective earth terminal). An
uninterruptible safety earth ground must be provided from the
mains power source to the product input wiring terminals, power
cord, or supplied power cord set. Whenever it is likely that the
protection has been impaired, the DCS1800 Test System must be
made inoperative and be secured against any unintended operation.
If the Agilent 83220A/E or HP/Agilent 8922 are to be energized via an
external autotransformer for voltage reduction, make sure that the
common terminal is connected to the neutral pole of the power
source.
Before connecting the Agilent 83220A/E or HP/Agilent 8922, the
protective earth terminal of the Agilent 83220A/E and HP/Agilent

About This Chapter
About This Chapter
This chapter describes the enhanced HP/Agilent 8922 Series user interface which allows
operation with the Agilent 83220A/E.
The DCS1800 Test System (Agilent 83220A/E and HP/Agilent 8922) is designed to have
the same appearance and feel as the HP/Agilent 8922 Series. Control of the system is
carried out using the HP/Agilent 8922 keyboard and display. The HP/Agilent 8922 Series
has been enhanced to allow operation with the Agilent 83220A/E to test
DCS1800/PCS1900 equipment.
The HP/Agilent 8922 is controlled by using menu selections to move from one display
screen to another. Within each screen, data can be entered by editing fields, using keys, or
by adjusting the knob. The following chapter describes the enhancements to each screen,
new fields, changed limits on existing fields and default settings for DCS1800 and
PCS1900 operation. For each screen, changes are indicated with reference to the
HP/Agilent 8922H. Enhancements to the other members of the HP/Agilent 8922 Series
will be identical, where functions exist, in all products of the family.
Affected screens are:
• CELL CONFIGURATION screen
• CELL CONTROL screen
• CONFIGURE screen
• SPECTRUM ANALYZER screen
• TESTS screen
NOTE
On an HP/Agilent 8922E/F/H, the Spectrum Analyzer screens, Output RF
Spectrum screens and Pulse ON/OFF Ratio screens are only available with
Option 006.
NOTE
If you have the Agilent 83220A/E Option 010 Multi-Band Test System, refer
to the appropriate HP/Agilent 8922 Multi-Band User’s Guide for more details
on screen differences.

Cell Configuration
This screen has a different layout from the GSM900 CELL CONFIGURATION Screen.
While positioned differently on the screen, the following areas have the same function and
method of operation in GSM900, DCS1800 and PCS1900 mode:
Serv Cell
Aux BCCH
RF Gen Amplitude

LAI
Settable/Activated
To Screen
With the exception of the ARFCN fields under “Serv Cell” and the “Control Ch” SD/8 mode,
each field retains its value after a GSM900/DCS1800 mode change. The ARFCN fields are
reset to the defaults for each mode when the mode changes.
The DCS1800 and PCS1900 mode CELL CONFIGURATION Screens “BA”, “CA”, “MA1”,
“MA2”, “MAIO1” and “MAIO2” exist as separate fields from the GSM900 mode
equivalents. In DCS1800 and PCS1900 mode these fields operate differently. Values
entered during any one of the three modes (GSM, DCS1800 or PCS1900) will not affect the
fields of the other two modes.
In DCS1800 and PCS1900 mode, the “BA<n>” and “CA<n>” tables are defined by a list of
ARFCN in contiguous ascending order. The allocation must begin at BA1 and CA1 and
continue through BA<m> and CA<m>. Normal ARFCN limits of 512 to 885 for DCS1800
and 512 to 810 for PCS1900 are allowed, zeros (0) are used to indicate no ARFCN set. Each

using the knob or data keys. “MA1” and “MA2” are each single boolean arrays. Values of 0
or 1 can be entered in each position of the array to point to CA table entries. “MA1” and
“MA2” use the same data entry method in GSM900, DCS1800 and PCS1900 modes.
“MAIO1” and “MAIO2” are independent fields for GSM900, DCS1800 and PCS1900
operation.

Where <n> = 1 to 16. Where <m> = the highest number allocated in the range
1 to 16.
On the HP/Agilent 8922E, the fields for “BA”, “CA”, “MA1”, “MA2”, “MAIO1”,
“MAIO2” and Aux BCCH are not displayed and cannot be changed from their
default settings.

This screen appears unmodified from GSM900 to DCS1800 and PCS1900. However, the TX
Level field has a different relationship to RF analyzer amplitude in DCS1800 and
PCS1900 than for GSM900.
For DCS1800 Operation:
RF IN/OUT analyzer ampl = 30 − 2×(TX Level) dBm
that is:
TX Level = 0 analyzer ampl = 30 dBm
TX Level = 13 analyzer ampl = 4 dBm
For the HP/Agilent 8922H with firmware B.06.00 or greater the TX levels are extended for
DCS1800. The additional levels are:
TX Level = 14 analyzer ampl = 2 dBm
TX Level = 15 analyzer ampl = 0 dBm

There is an additional selection added to the Procedure field. The new entry is SYS_CAL
and invokes a system calibration program.
SYS_CAL is a user-initiated calibration routine performed between the HP/Agilent 8922

combination of HP/Agilent 8922 and Agilent 83220A are connected together, (or whenever
the HP/Agilent 8922 or Agilent 83220A are changed), or after a RAM Initialize from the

Introduction
Introduction
GPIB is available via the HP/Agilent 8922. No separate control of the Agilent 83220A/E is
necessary. Most GPIB commands are unchanged for DCS1800 and PCS1900 operation.
Refer to the “GPIB” chapter in the relevant HP/Agilent 8922 Series User’s Guide or
HP/Agilent 8922 Programming Reference Guide for programming format conventions.
NOTE
If you have the Agilent 83220A/E Option 010 Multi-Band Test System, refer
to the appropriate Agilent 8922 Multi-Band User’s Guide for more details on
GPIB programming differences.
New GPIB Commands
A small number of new commands have been added to the existing HP/Agilent 8922 set.
Refer to the Relevant Subsystem description in the “GPIB” chapter of the relevant
HP/Agilent 8922M/S Programming Reference Guide for a fuller explanation.
NOTE
These are extended versions of existing commands to allow compatibility with
the new DCS1800 and PCS1900 codes.
On the HP/Agilent 8922E/F/G/H, all spectrum analyzer, output RF spectrum,
and pulse on/off ratio commands are only available with Option 006. In
addition, most settings affecting cell configuration are not settable (cannot be
changed) while Activated, subsequently, the commands for “BA”, “CA”, “MA1”,
“MA2”, “MAIO1”, “MAIO2” and Aux BCCH are not available on an HP
8922E.
The new commands are as follows:

Introduction
Introduction
This chapter covers any messages which are specific to the DCS1800 Test System.
Messages
DCS1800 Test Set has changed.
Rereading cal data
This message will be displayed whenever an HP/Agilent 8922 detects the presence of an
Agilent 83220A/E which has a different serial number from the previous Agilent 83220A/E
that was recognized. It will also be displayed the first time the Agilent 83220A/E is
accessed after performing a RAM Initialization operation on the SERVICE screen. The
Agilent 83220A/E is accessed at power-up if it is attached and also when DCS1800 or
PCS1900 mode is selected.
DCS1800 Test Set is not connected, or not powered on
An attempt has been made to select DCS1800 or PCS1900 mode with the PCN Interface
incorrectly attached, or the Agilent 83220A/E not powered up or non operational. This may
also indicate a fault with the Agilent 83220A/E or HP/Agilent 8922.
Cal file checksum incorrect.
File reset to default values
This message will be displayed following a RAM Initialization from the SERVICE screen. It
will also be displayed if there has been a problem reading the calibration data from the
Agilent 83220A/E into the HP/Agilent 8922. This could be caused if the PCN Interface
cable is not properly connected. If the problem persists, it may mean that the Agilent
83220A/E or HP/Agilent 8922 is faulty.
Facility is not available in Agilent 83220E Test Set
The Agilent 83220E cannot perform any operations associated with the AUX RF OUT or
AUX RF IN connectors (they do not exist on the Agilent 83220E). This includes the System
Calibration Routine as shown in the TESTS screen of the "Screens" chapter in this
manual.
