FAQ
 





  • What are the key featres of Alligator Communications products?
    • Automatic Global Frequency Calibration (AGFC)
    • Automatic Deviation Control (ADC)
    • Automatic Level Control (ALC)
  • What is Automatic Global Frequency Calibration (AGFC)?
    • Automatic Global Frequency Calibration is a system developed by Alligator Communications that uses GatorTracTM to calibrate the frequency of each remote radio to the time base of the Master Radio. This allows the entire network of remote radios to operate as close to zero frequency offset as possible to the TCXO in the Master Radio and to permit the entire system to operate at peak performance with dispatching a service technician to adjust the frequency manually.
  • What is Automatic Deviation Control (ADC)?
    • Automatic Deviation Control (ADC) holds FM deviation constant regardless of input level and maintains deviation within FCC channel tolerances for both sudden and long-term variations.
  • What is Automatic Level Control (ALC)?
    • Automatic Level Control adjusts input levels to match the output of the RTU precisely. The range of the ALC is from -20 dBm to +10 dBm.
  • What are Event Counters?
    • There are three event counters for receiver squelch, PTT time-out and transmitter time-out. These counters help identify RF path problems or external keying problems caused by detective RTUs.
  • What Over-the-Air Adjustments may be made?
    • Complete remote control and monitoring is provided by Alligator Communications Masters and Remotes. Frequency adjustments, diagnostics, and operating parameters eliminate having to send a technician to a remote site.
  • When is Repeater Configuration appropriate?
    • When dead spots created by hills, mountains, buildings or other intervening terrain features are created, a repeater can share a common frequency pair to additional remote site.
  • Is True Redundancy Possible?
    • Yes, a Master can be configured with A and B transmit and receive modules as well as redundant power supplies. Automatic A/B transmitters cycling can also be programmed for additional system availability.
