3B-10. EMERGENCY LOCATOR TRANSMITTER.
a. Description. An automatic or manually
activated Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) is
located in the right side of the fuselage at
approximately FS 340.00. The associated antenna is
mounted on top of the aft fuselage at the same
location, Figure 2-1, Sheet 2. An access hole with a
spring-loaded cover is located in the right fuselage
skin adjacent to the transmitter, enabling a downed
pilot to manually initiate, terminate, or reset the ELT to
an armed mode. Self-contained batteries provide
operation for a minimum of 48 hours.
The transmitter contains an impact G switch that
automatically activates the transmitter following a 3 to
7 G impact along the flight axis of the aircraft. When
activated, it will simultaneously radiate omni-directional
RF signals on the international distress frequencies of
121.5 and 243.0 MHz. The radiated signal is
modulated with an audio swept tone.

emergency signal transmissions.
(b) ARM . Establishes a readiness state
to start automatic emergency signal transmissions
when the force of impact exceeds a preset threshold.
(c) OFF. Turns set off.
Section III. NAVIGATION
The overall navigation equipment group provides
the pilot and copilot with the instrumentation required
to establish and maintain an accurate flight course and
position and to make an approach on instruments
under Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC).
The navigation configuration includes equipment for
determining attitude, position, destination range and
bearing, heading reference, and groundspeed.
3B-12. RADIO MAGNETIC INDICATORS (RMI).
a. Description. Two identical KNI-582 RMI
indicators are installed. Refer to Figure 3B-5. Each
RMI provides aircraft heading and radio bearing
information to/from a VOR, TACAN or ADF facility. A
selector switch on the RMI allows the operator to
select either #1 ADF and #1 VOR or #1 ADF and
TACAN for single needle display. The double needle
always points to the #2 ADF or #2 VOR bearing as
selected by the double needle switch. The pilot's RMI
is protected by a 1-ampere circuit breaker, placarded
#1 RMI. The copilot's RMI is protected by a 1-ampere
circuit breaker, placarded #2 RMI. Both circuit
breakers are located on the overhead circuit breaker
panel, Figure 2-16, Sheet 3.
b. Controls and Functions.
(1) Warning Flag. Indicates loss of heading
signal, or that bearing information is unreliable.
(2) Compass Card. Gyro stabilized to
indicate aircraft heading and bearing information.
