LIGHTING SURGE PROTECTION Alpha Delta Model D-4 internally mounted, field-replaceable ceramic
gas tube Arc-Plug Cartridge Pill.
SPECIAL SWITCHING FUNCTIONS When the knob points to the center (ground) switch position, all antenna circuits are internally disconnected and grounded. When the knob is in an active position, the unused antenna ports are grounded.
The active position circuit is continuously protected by the Model D-4 Arc-Plug Cartridge Pill.
GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS A separate, external ground wire must be used from one set of user-supplied
mounting hardware (through either thru-hole on the base plate) to the station ground system. (Not the equipment chassis.) The Arc-Plug Cartridge Pill will not operate without a good ground. Note:
Paint should be removed at the point of ground hardware connection to the base plate. It is also good practice to ground the coax shield at the point of entry to the building.
