Becker TG 460 System
The BECKER TG 460 ground station offers a new concept for ground to air communication on small and regional air-fields, also for oil rigs and ships and for airlines as a company frequency station.
Virtually all practical user requirements can be covered by the TG 460. The heart of the TG 460 is a brand new transceiver which utilises the most modern state of the art technology to cover the whole 118.000 MHz to 136.975 MHz frequency range and is therefore operational on all 760 channels. Preselection of 20 channels is a standard built in feature as well as the scanning function over the preselected channels.
The system is mounted in a 19″ and 2 height units high housing, available as desk-top or as 19″ rack-mount unit.
A simple, quick and easy to use operation is guaranteed by way of the key pad on the front panel. A two line display clearly indicates the selected operational mode.
The power supply is normally via the A.C. mains supply; however an external DC back-up may be connected. The base version of the system is offered in 5 and 10 Watt transmitter carrier power versions. Several options, and a complete packet of accessories permit this system to be used in virtually every situation.
The transceiver may be controlled remotely via a multi-wire cable over a distance of up to 100 m, by using the desk-top remote control. If remote control is required, over larger distance or via 2-wire PTT lines, a 2-wire interface and a remote control desktop unit with 2-wire interface are already available.
The tape recorder connection permits the AF to be recorded for documentational purposes. When the optional internal battery is used, the system is operational even in the case of a power failure, and as the base station is then independent from the mains power supply, it can be used as an emergency station.
