AbstractThe RCAF has programmed a new antenna for their dual-channel radar, the AN/FPS-508. Fitted to this antenna is a Vari-Polarizer which permits simultaneous operation of both channels of the radar, i.e., operation in a diplex mode. At the request of the RCAF, the National Research Council developed the Diplex Gating Unit which automatically selects the outputs of the receivers in the channel affected least in a jammed environment. These outputs are then fed to the AN/FST-2 Data Transmission Equipment and the AJ Console. The construction and testing of the experimental and service test models are described in this report. A solution is given to the crosstalk problem that is likely to be encountered with the use of the Wide-Band Dicke Fix receivers when operating in the diplex mode. Minor modifications are recommended for use in a production model in order to increase reliability and ease of maintenance.
