What are the procedures for inadvertent IMC entry

Upon encountering inadvertent IMC in Fort Campbell restricted airspace, initiate IMC procedures in accordance with the applicable ATM, and climb to minimum altitude of 3000 feet MSL.

1

What are the initial actions taken during IMC IF SINGLE SHIP

maintain constant heading unless turning to avoid known obstacles.

2

What are the initial actions taken during IMC if in formation

proceed as briefed (maintain constant heading unless turning to avoid known obstacles) Altitude separation will be 500 feet with no aircraft below 3000 feet MSL and no aircraft above 6000 feet MSL

3

What is the transponder for VFR aircraft entering IMC in the reservation

Set transponder to squawk emergency 7700”; for formation flights only the lead aircraft will squawk

4

What does a AN/TPX-42A Interrogator do

sends out signals challenging all transponders on Mode 3A and Mode C altitude readout

5

sends a signal back to the secondary radar antenna enabling the position, and altitude of aircraft Mode C equipped to be plotted on the radar scope.

The transponder

6

What is interrogated by AN/TPX-42A interrogator

All types of aircraft transponders and Mode C

7

What is the purpose of the decoder

enables the interrogator to decode up to 4096 discrete codes in Mode 3A.

8

What are the components of secondary radar

Interrogator
Transponder
Decoder
Interlacing

9

Text book description behind interlacing

The equipment is interlaced to receive Mode 3A and Mode C

10

What is DAIR

AN/TPX-42A Direct Altitude Identification Readout (DAIR).

11

How does then AN/TPX-42A operate

Line of sight

12

How will aircraft altitude display

line-of-sight targets within a 60 mile radius of the antenna.

13

How are aircraft altitudes filtered

Targets may be filtered out at selected altitudes or the range reduced to as low as 6 nautical miles.

14

Describe resolution as it pertains to presentation of radar

Since the data received by the antenna is sent from a transponder there is no problem with the resolution between targets. The alpha-numeric’s often overlap, and are not discernible at times. This can be usually be overcome by changing the direction of the stem on the alpha-numeric’s.

15

How to you correct ring around

By reducing the power or range

16

Define slant range

Targets are displayed at their slant range. All beacon control slashes are displaced in direct relationship to the ASR-9 main bang. In relationship to the main bang, each beacon control slash is 1/2 mile beyond the primary radar target.

17

What does the AN/TPX-42A interface with

ASR-9 Surveillance RADAR
PIDP programmable indicator data processor

18

PIDP

Programmable indicator data processor

19

Provides a data block on the radar indicator that correlates with MEMPHIS center ARTS, passes the flight plans and off-times and makes automated hand offs

PIDP

20

What happens if weather data on the ASR 9 is reported as questionable or erroneous

SL/CIC SHALL verify digitized radar information by the best means available (NEXRAD PIREP Tower personnel, FSS)

21

What codes are assigned by eagle

0201 through 0237 excluding 8 and 9s

22

What are the procedures of eagle requires additional codes

1 Eagle radio will advise ARAC additional codes are needed

2 first make the request with ARAC FOR THE CODES

3 if unable, will receive codes from Memphis center (ZME) computer

23

Where will the codes from ZME print out to

ARAC printer HOP 01

Will only appear in Eagles arrival departure list not ARAC
Call sign
Squawk

24

What codes are assigned to ARAC

0240 through 0277

25

What is the emergency code

7700

26

What is the code for lost comm

7600

27

What is the code for hijack signal

7500

28

What are the MEDEVAC Signal codes

0101
0102
0103
0104

29

What type of equipment is included in RADAR

ASR-11
AN/TPX-24A
AN/FPN-67
