NEVER install the transceiver into an aircraft with a 24 V battery. The transceiver operates with 13.8 V DC. CD @ <ID @ (§) @ VHF air band antenna for the communication band. Cables. Switches are mounted on the aircraft yoke. 500 Q headphones. Low-impedance carbon or dynamic microphone. Preamplifier for a dynamic microphone. NEVER connect the transceiver to a power source using reverse polarity. This connection damages the transceiver. To prevent voltage drops, solder or crimp the cable lug when connecting the DC power cable to the power supply. ANTENNA TRANSCEIVER LOCATION Select a location which can support the weight of the transceiver. NEVERinstall an antenna near any aircraft projection, engine or propeller. Use a 50 Q , vertically-polarized, VHF air band antenna. NEVER place the transceiver where normal navigation of the aircraft may be hindered or where it could cause bodily injury. VSWR should be less than 3: 1. NEVER bend the cables sharply or place the cables too near the aircraft control cables. Mount the antenna on a flat metal surface or install a ground plane of at least 120 cm2(18 in2). DO NOT place the transceiver where hot or cold air blows directly on it. AVOID placing the transceiver in areas with temper- atures below - 20.C or above + 55 .C . INTERCOM INTERLOCK The intercom function is available by wiring and installing a yoke-mounted communication/intercom switch. This function facilitates swift contact between the pilot and co-pilot. 2-pairs of headphones and microphones are required for pilot and co-pilot. If 2 transceivers are installed in your aircraft, wiring for a transmit/receive interlock is required. To protect the receiver circuit from extremely strong signals, this function prevents receiving while another transceiver is transmitting. COMM1 AND COMM2 STICKERS When 2 transceivers are installed, to distinguish them from one another, attach the supplied COMM1 and COMM2 stickers.

Notes for hole making the mounting The mounting bracket has 0.64 mm (0.025 in) dimples built in to the top, the bottom and both sides for proper spacing. The IC-A200 can be mounted securely in the supplied mounting bracket. Mark and cut the mounting holes. Remember to allow adequate space for installation of cables and connectors. To support the mounting bracket, the rear mounting bosses should be attached to the airframe. When installing 2 or more transceivers in a stack, the mounting trays should be 1.27 mm (0.05 in) apart. .

Assemble the Molex connector as follows. . Contact terminal assembly 1) Strip 4 mm (0.16 in) from each wire for the contact terminal. . . Polarizing key Before installing the Molex connector into the mounting rack, check the polarizing key position between contacts 8 and 9. Refer to Connector front view in WIRING at left. Contact extraction Use the Molex contact ejector tool. 2) Open the HTR-6115 Molex hand crimper with the engraved side toward you. 3) Insert the stripped conductor until the insulation is even with the side of the crimper facing you. 1) Slip the flat narrow blade of the contact ejector tool under the contact on the mating side of the connector. 4) Clip the conductor tab until a crimp is obtained. 2) 5) Move the lead to the crimper anvil. 6) Place the insulating tab section on the crimper anvil. 3) When the blade is fully in, pull the lead using moderate pressure. 7) Crimp again until a sufficient crimp is obtained. 4) . Turn the connector upside down to slide the blade into the stop. Before reinstalling, make sure the tab extends as in the figure below. Contact insertion Insert the contact terminals into the proper location in the connector housing. Push the terminal until a click is heard. COAXIAL CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY 1) Strip the RG-58 coaxial cable. Soft solder the shield and center conductor independently. 3) After soldering, install a ring and a cap. 3 mm; 1/8 in -1 I- ~~ 6 mm; 1/4 in 3 mm; 1/8 in 10mm~3/8in 2) Solder the shield and center conductor to the coaxial connector. DO NOT apply excessive heat. - '0/ Solder ~solder OPERATION CHECK Check the following points after transceiver installation. - Polarity of the power supply. - NOinterferencecausedto otherequipment. - NO noise or interference from other equipment. - VSWR is less than 3 : 1. - Communication capability on both the highest and lowest communication frequency, if possible. . RACK MOUNTING . Transceiver installation Transceiver removal 1) Visually confirm that the metal catch on the top of the transceiver is as shown in Fig. 1. The IC-A200 is easily removed from the mounting rack, if required. 2) Slowly insert the transceiver into the mounting rack. 1) Insert a 3/32 in alien wrench into the hole in the front panel as shown in Fig. 2. 3) Insert a 3/32 in alien wrench into the hole in the front panel. 2) Rotate the wrench counterclockwise until the front panel moves slightly from the mounting rack as shown in Fig. 2. 3) Slowly pull the transceiver out from the mounting rack. 4) . Rotate the wrench clockwise until the screw stops. DO NOT overtighten the screw. ... Fig. 1 Clockwise: For installation. Counterclockwise: For removal.
