DESIGN

This equipment is two separate units that can be used stand alone, independent of each other. The first unit, ALSCB, contains two audio limiter modules that have fast attack on high peak audio levels to prevent excessive FM deviation. The two left and right audio signals are converted to a single MPX output. The second unit, 1WPLLB, uses a low power VHF oscillator amplified to 1 watt of power. It is phase locked to a reference quartz oscillator. The 1 watt RF signal is low pass filtered at the final output. The two sets are housed in metal enclosures fully screened to protect the user from direct contact with RF voltages and to prevent unwanted emissions, local interference and provide the RF unit with adequate immunity for the proper functioning in an industrial environment.

USA TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

This transmitter includes internal audio limiting which will limit audio and in turn the maximum FM deviation. The final adjustment for this limit on maximum deviation must be made by the customer or operator, it is not something we can factory set as it depends on whether other sub carriers such as SCA or RDS or being used. The deviation, including, pilot tone and if sued RDS and SCA, should be set to maintain compliance with the FCC rules and technical requirements. More information on this is at is in section 2.1047 Modulation characteristics and section 2.1049 Occupied bandwidth at:
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/granule/CFR-2011-title47-vol1/CFR-2011-title47-vol1-sec2-1047/content-detail.html

EU REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

This transmitter includes internal audio limiting which will limit audio and in turn the maximum FM deviation. The final adjustment for this limit on maximum deviation must be made by the customer or operator, it is not something we can factory set as it depends on whether other sub carriers such as SCA or RDS or being used. The deviation, including, pilot tone and if used RDS and SCA, should be set to maintain compliance with EU standards. More information on this in section 8 Audio Processing Limiter at http://www.aareff.com/ETR132.pdf

This product complies with EMC directive of the European Union. To meet this directive the user or installer must follow the wiring instructions in the this user manual

This equipment is not intended for installation by an unqualified end user, the installer must have competent RF engineering skills and EMC knowledge at their disposal. The whole transmission system, including the antenna system and external audio limiting, should be installed in the EU in accordance with document ETR132, a copy of this is available at http://www.aareff.com/ETR132.pdf

ANTENNA

Even at 1W incorrect antenna and /or bad feeder cable connections can cause light RF burns and levels of RF exposure above the recommended limits for personnel

The RF output of this unit should be connected to:

Under no circumstances should the RF OUT be left open and unconnected if the power output of the unit is set higher than zero.

Ideally the antenna should be mounted at least 20 meters high and clear of any surrounding objects to get maximum range and more importantly to reduce risk of radio frequency radiation to personnel. When an antenna with 3dBi or higher gain towards the horizon is mounted at least 20 meters in height off ground and using up to 200 watts of transmitter power, power flux density measurements made at ground level directly under the antenna show less than 1 W/m2. Several European countries use a value for the power flux density of 10 W/m2 as a basis for considering whether or not an area is safe. The issue of radio frequency radiation limits is a contentious one and work in this field is continuing worldwide. Under no circumstances should an antenna be mounted and used at ground level or within a few meters of personnel.

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should the antenna be mounted and used at ground level next to personnel.

If this transmitter is going to be connected directly to an antenna, 50 ohm coaxial cable should be used. The antenna should present a return loss ideally of 16dB (SWR 1.4) or better at the operating frequency. The RF plug should be PL259 (UHF) or N type, depending which is fitted to the transmitter.

Ensure that all antenna connections are sound, this is important as poor connections and soldered joints can cause RF burns to personnel, severe noise to the transmission and excessive RF bandwidth. Do NOT connect the antenna to the transmitter yet.

INSTALLING THE TRANSMITTER

The installation must be by an engineer that has skills and competence in EMC and radio frequency systems. The final installation should be in accordance with the site engineering document at http://www.aareff.com/ETR132.pdf

DON'T APPLY THE POWER SUPPLY JUST YET

A) FIRST !! Set the RF Output to Zero

Locate VR2 RF PWR on the bottom panel. BE CAREFUL not to be too heavy handed, these controls are only small pcb mounted pots and switches and can be damaged with excessive force. You will need to use a small electrical screwdriver to adjust these controls.

Turn VR2, carefully, anti clockwise, until it reaches the stop. At this position there should be no RF output when the DC power is applied.

B) Power Supply and DC Input

The DC INPUT and DC AUX OUT on both ALSCB and 1WPLLB are simply connected together inside the units. The purpose of this is to allow other DC equipment to be connected in “daisy chain” and share the same power supply. The current capacity of the DC connectors is 5 amps, so if the external power source can provide 5 amps and exciter consumes 0.6 amps, this leaves 4.4 amps of power available for other equipment using the AUX OUT DC. The DC input connectors are 5.5 mm in outer diameter and 2.1 mm in diameter in the central pin. The central pin is positive and the negative or ground outside. Both units have reverse polarity protection.

C) Setting the Frequency

Locate the two banks of 6 way dip switches S2 and S1. At the very end of this user manual you can locate the section DIL SWITCH (S2 and S1). This table shows all the frequencies from 87.5 to 108 MHz and the corresponding DIP switch settings. Look up your frequency in the table and then set the tiny dip switches to the ON or OFF position as shown in the table. These switches will determine the start up frequency for the transmitter, so, it's very important they are correct. If they are not correct it's possible to transmit on an unauthorised frequency

Double check again with the DIL SWITCH (S2 and S1) table that the dip switches are in the correct positions. Make sure they are pushed fully into the ON position or OFF position, not halfway between.

D) Powering the Transmitter

Double check the power is reduced to minimum as described in A) above. At this point the RF OUT should still be disconnected.

Go to the back panel:

  1. Using the MPX Audio Lead, connect MPX OUTPUT to MPX INPUT
  2. Using the DC to DC Lead, connect DC AUX OUT on the ALSCB to the DC INPUT on the 1WPLLB
  3. Connect the 15V DC Power Supply to the DC INPUT on the ALSCB

Observe the front panel power meter, it shoud be reading zero. If it is not zero, disconnect the 15V DC power supply immediately and double check the power is reduced to minimum as described in A) above.

The power meter light should light up RED, this may change to BLUE after a few seconds, if it does great, if it doesn't, don't worry at this point, this is also normal.

E) Locking the PLL

It may be by chance that the PLL is close to lock and the power meter has lit up in BLUE. If this is not the case and is lit up in RED, then adjust in any direction VC1 FREQ. ADJ. slowly until the frequency locks

PLEASE be careful, this control is delicate. Be patient and continue to turn slowly until the power meter lights up BLUE, then STOP turning. The BLUE light indicates PLL lock. The power meter should continue to indicate zero, if the power meter is showing any power, please check again paragraph A) Set The RF Output To Zero

F) Connecting the Audio / Baseband

In the previous section D) Powering the Transmitter, the MPX Audio Lead was connected between MPX OUTPUT and the MPX INPUT. If you wish to use an external audio processor or RDS unit, it can be inserted into the MPX signal at this point.

Apply your stereo audio signal at standard line level of between -10dBu and +20dBu to the unbalanced RCA/Phono inputs AUDIO INPUT (1) and AUDIO INPUT (2). If the level is correct you should see the AUDIO CHANNEL 1/2 LEDs flashing on the front panel.

G) Checking the Audio Deviation

During manufacture and test the audio deviation will be set broadcast standard line of +8dBu peak for +/-75KHz peak deviation at 88.0 MHz. There is a high possibility that this will not be the same level as the audio source feed from your studio, external audio processing device, MPX stereo generator and/or RDS generator. You need to check this as excessive deviation can cause adjacent channel interference to other users of the radio spectrum.

WITHOUT TEST EQUIPMENT

Audio deviation is difficult to measure without proper test equipment and the method described here cannot replace proper test equipment, however if your regulator permits this method it is possible to check the deviation very close to correct level by using a relative comparison. Use a radio receiver tuned to a known high quality, high budget and reputed radio station. For example in the United Kingdom this would be a national BBC station. Feed the audio output of the radio receiver into some VU meter or level indication on a mixer or other audio equipment. Look carefully at the metering level peaks. You will notice the meter peak constantly at a specific level, make a note of this. Place the antenna of radio receiver as close as possible to your transmitter enclosure. Re-tune the radio receiver to your transmitter frequency. Look at the metering again. Adjust VR1 DEV. ADJ. so that your audio constantly peaks at a little lower than the level you noted. When you have achieved this your deviation is a little lower or close to the legal level. The reason for this setting is that it is legal to under deviate, but not-legal to over deviate, with a lack of test equipment

It is better to be under deviating in order to prevent adjacent channel interference until you have proper test equipment available.

WITH TEST EQUIPMENT

Connect the transmitter via a coupler and dummy load to a Spectrum Analyzer, Modulation Analyzer or Deviation Meter. Adjust VR2 RF PWR. to full. Adjust VR1 DEV. ADJ. for the correct deviation on the test equipment.

H) Connecting The Antenna

Do NOT connect antenna to the transmitter until you have followed all the previous instructions in this section fully.

The power meter should be showing zero, if not section c) above Reducing The RF Output To Zero.

If the power meter is showing zero, then connect to the external amplifier input or plug the antenna cable into the transmitters BNC RF OUT connector. Make sure this tight as poor and loose connections can cause RF burns to personnel, severe noise to the transmission and excessive RF bandwidth.

I) Setting the Power

Locate the power control VR2 RF PWR. ADJ. and set it to full. The power meter should indicate close to 1000mW if the the antenna or amplifer load is 50 ohms or has a SWR of less than 1.5. THE TRANSMITTER IS NOW ON AIR!

MAINTENANCE

This unit does not need any regular maintenance, it's internals are completely sealed from the outside environment. You can expect 10 years of continuous 24/7 use from this unit.
