(3) Program Mode. The preset channels and
frequencies are set using the program mode.
Pressing and holding the CHAN switch for 2 seconds
will place the unit into the program mode. A P- and
a channel number will be shown in the active display,
and a frequency or dashes will be shown in the
standby display. Immediately after entering the
program mode the channel number will begin to flash,
indicating that rotating the tuning knobs will change the
channel number. Momentarily pressing the transfer
switch will cause the channel number to stop flashing
and cause the frequency to begin flashing, indicating
that rotating the tuning knobs will change the
frequency. Momentarily pressing the CHAN switch will
return the unit to the frequency mode. The standby
frequency will return to what it was prior to entering the
program mode. The unit will automatically return to
the frequency mode if no front panel activity takes
place for 20 seconds.
d. Modes of Operation. The ADF receiver
mode of operation is selected by a momentary push
button switch placarded MODE. The operating mode
changes from ADF to ANT to ADF/BFO to ANT/BFO
with each press of the mode switch.
(1) Antenna Mode (ANT). When the ADF
receiver is in the ANT mode, audio will be present in
the speaker or headphone (if the respective number 1
or 2 ADF receiver audio switch is on), and the RMI
indicator needle that is being used will be parked at
the 90° relative position.
(2) Automatic Direction Finder (ADF) Mode.
When the ADF receiver is in the ADF mode of
operation, the RMI needle or HSI bearing pointer that
is being used will indicate the relative bearing to the
(3) Beat Frequency Oscillator (BFO) Mode.
The BFO is used to hear audio when the tuned station
is a keyed continuous wave (CW) station. The BFO
may be used either in the ANT or ADF mode.

3C-24. AUTOMATIC FLIGHT CONTROL SYSTEM
a. Description. The automatic flight control
system is an integrated autopilot/flight director/air data
When the autopilot is engaged and coupled to
the commands of the flight director, the flight control
system will control the aircraft using the same
commands which are displayed on the attitude director
indicator by the flight director command cue. When
the autopilot is engaged and uncoupled from the flight
director commands, manual pitch and roll commands
may be inserted using the Touch Control Steering
(TCS) on the control wheels or the pitch wheel and
turn knob on the autopilot control panel.
When the autopilot is coupled, the flight director
command cue indications on the attitude director
performance of the autopilot. When the autopilot is not
engaged, the same modes of operation are available
for flight director only. The pilot maneuvers the aircraft
to satisfy the flight director commands, as does the
autopilot when it is engaged.
b. Air Data Computer. A digital air data
computer located in the forward avionics compartment
provides the altitude information for the pilot's
altimeter, altitude alerter, and transponder. The
computer also provides altitude and airspeed hold
function data to the flight control computers. The air
data computer is powered through a 2-ampere circuit
breaker, placarded AIR DATA ENCODER, on the
overhead circuit breaker panel, Figure 2-16. All air
