It also provides unique measurement, monitoring and alarming of the Rx subsystem (Rx Antenna/TTA/RMC), Tx-to-Rx Antenna Isolation(s), and Tx-to-Rx Carrier Rejection performance. The Antenna Line Coupler(s) is inserted after the Tx combiner on the antenna feeder cable. All frequencies, channel bandwidths and level thresholds are software definable. A DB15 rear mounted connector provides alarm relay outputs that can be hardwired into most alarm reporting facilities. Configuration, diagnostics and communication management are facilitated through the use of an on-board webserver GUI. The APM is available in four different bands covering VHF, UHF, 7/800MHz and 8/900MHz frequency ranges.
