For Missions that require simultaneous operation on three bands, the AMS-6000 can be configured to operate in "separate radio" mode. In this mode, the AMS-6000 outputs separate sets of key lines and receive/transmit audio lines to support up to three separate audio controller positions. In the "separate radio" mode, transmitter selection is made by selecting the desired radio via the aircraft's audio controller.
When the AMS-6000 is operated in either of the "combined radio" or "single radio" modes, the receive signal from each of the bands is annunciated by a receive LED on the AMS-6000 front panel. In the "single radio " mode, the transmit selection/indication functions for each band are enabled by push buttons on the face panel of the AMS-6000 with an LED confirming the selected band. Inasmuch as the TDFM-600/6000 can only display information regarding a single band at any given time, the AMS-6000 will enhance operator awareness by providing receive indication on up to three bands simultaneously. Additionally, the AMS-6000 provides support for simulcast for up to three bands and cross band repeat in either the "combined radio" or "separate radio" modes.
Also, a convenient front panel connector is provided on the AMS-6000 which allows for operating channel information for up to 255 channels per band to be downloaded from a PC. The same connector supports encryption key loading for any or all of the TDFM-600/6000 transceiver modules which have encryption options installed.
