2.4 Transceivers

2.4.2 Describe the purpose, correct manipulation and adjustment of the controls of commonly used aeronautical transceivers.

When it comes to aeronautical transceivers, their purpose is to facilitate communication between pilots and air traffic control.

These devices are essential for maintaining safe and efficient air traffic.


To manipulate and adjust the controls of aeronautical transceivers, pilots need to follow certain procedures.

Here are some key steps:

1. Frequency Selection: 

Pilots need to select the appropriate frequency for the desired communication.

They can do this by tuning the transceiver's frequency knobs or using a digital interface.


2. Volume Control:

Adjusting the volume allows pilots to set the audio level of incoming transmissions, ensuring clear and audible communication.


3. Squelch Control:

The squelch control helps eliminate background noise when there is no active transmission.

Pilots can adjust this control to filter out unwanted static or interference.
