RF COMMUNICATIONS ANTENNAS RF-1912, RF-1912A INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS @ HARRIS RF-1912/RF-1912A, RF COMMUNICATIONS GENERAL INFORMATION SS SECTION 1 GENERAL INFORMATION 4.1. INTRODUCTION ‘The RF-1912 and RF-1912A Antennas are electrically identical antennas that can be connected as high-angle dipoles for short-to-medium range skywave propagation, or as top-loaded verticals for short-range groundwave or long-range skywave propagation. The RF-1912 Antenna is intended for temporary installations on the ground, and is provided with stakes to anchor guy ropes and baseplates. The RF-1912A Antenna is provided with special hardware and guys for permanent rooftop or ground installations, Instructions are provided for installing the RF-1912A Antenna on solid masonry or wooden roofs, and on concrete pads for permanent ground installations. ‘The RF-1912 and RF-1912A Antennas can be used with the RF-382, RF-2601, RF-3281, or RF-3282 Antenna Coupler. Figure 1-1 shows the RF-1912 and RF-1912A Antennas. Two people are required to install either antenna, In some circumstances, local laws may gover the installation of antennas. Zoning or building perm may be required. WARNING ‘The installation of antennas and their associated support structures requires specialized skills, These installations should only be made by personnel experienced in these skills and only after they have thoroughly read and understood the supplied documentation. Failure to do so could result in serious damage to the equipment and injury to personnel both during and after installation. Upon request, Harris Corporation can supply training in the techniques required, Harris Corporation assumes no responsibility or liability for any damage or injury that may oceur as the result of any installation. 1.2 SAFETY INFORMATION Each year, hundreds of people are killed, mutilated, or receive severe permanent injuries when attempting to install or dismantle an antenna. In many of these cases, the victim was aware of the dangers of electrocution but did not take adequate steps to avoid the hazard, For your safety and to help achieve a safe installation, read and follow the safety precautions below. They may save your life. 1, Ifyou are installing or dismantling an antenna for the first time, for your own safety as well as others, seek professional assistance. Consult your dealer. He can explain which mounting or dismantling method to use for the size and type antenna you are about to install or dismantle. 2. Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance, in mind. (Refer to the site selection information.) Remember: power lines and phone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any overhead lines can kill you. 3. _ Call your power company. Tell them your plans and ask them to took at your site, This is little inconvenience considering your life is at stake. 4. Before you begin, plan your installation or dismantling procedure carefully. Successful installation or dismantling of a mast or tower is langely a mater of coordination. Each person should be assigned to a specific task and should know what to do and when to do it. One person should be designated as the “boss” to call out instructions and watch for signs of trouble. 14 RF-1912/RF-1912A @ HaRRIS GENERAL INFORMATION RF COMMUNICATIONS. ‘When installing or dismantling your antenna, remember: do not use a metal ladder. Do not work on a wet or windy day or if a thunderstomm is approaching. Dress properly — shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, long sleeve shirt or jacket, and a hardhat. Ifthe assembly starts to drop, get away from it and Iet it fall. Remember: the antenna, mast, cable, and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current. Even the slightest touch of any of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer — that’s you! If any part of the antenna system should contact a power line, do not touch it or try to remove it yourself. Call your local power company. They will remove it safely. Ifan electrical accident should occur, do not grab hold of the person in contact with the power line oF you too will be electrocuted. Use a dry board, stick, or rope to push or pull the victim away from the antenna, If the victim has stopped breathing, administer artificial respiration and stay with it, Have someone call for medical help. 1.3. SITE SELECTION Select a tower location sufficiently clear and out of falling distance of power lines since every electrical and telephone wire should be considered dangerous. The only safe distance from power lines is at least twice the height of the tower. Tower should be installed and dismantled by experienced and trained personnel. All antenna installations must be grounded per local or national codes. 1.2 @ HARRIS RF-1912/RF-1912A RF COMMUNICATIONS GENERAL INFORMATION ‘A.
