Maintenance Kit OA-9163/GRC-l93A is available as a Maintenance Test Bed.
This chapter describes the intermediate maintenance effort applicable to the power amplifier.
Included herein are maintenance scheduling, tools and equipment, safety precautions, disassembly and
assembly, inspection, and various troubleshooting, alignment, and adjustment data for the power amplifier.
Tabular data, illustrations, and references to the theoretical explanations of chapter 2 are included to aid
the technician in a complete understanding of the procedures and equipment.
This chapter is arranged such that the troubleshooting and field maintenance sections are integrated
with one another. The maintenance procedures contained in this chapter use input and output signals,
switching and control, and power sources provided by various components of Radio Set AN/GRC-193, of
which Power Amplifier AM-6545/GRC-193 is a component. If it is desired to test the power amplifier not
using Radio Set AN/GRC-193 as a test standard, the inputs and outputs can be duplicated using laboratory
equipment. Refer to figure 3-1 for specific details.
