Service TX: (c)arrier (r)andom (s)ync (dNNNNNNNN) hex data (p):5000ms fr(e)q. step modem (R)eset (q)uit
(c)arrier — Radio part transmits unmodulated carrier.
(r)andom — Continuous transmission of random data. Used in production to judge the signal with the RX eye at the receiving station.
(s)ync — Transmits the RF data frame synchronisation sequence.
(dNNNNNNNN) — Repeated transmission of four bytes. From these, each is assigned another pair of NN. This enables measurements with an arbitrary setting.
hex data (p): 5000ms — transmission duration, max. selectable time is 65 535 ms
fr(e)q. step — see RF service (R)X above
modem (R)eset — see RF service (R)X above

The unit status would also display warnings when the CU is in some exceptional state, e.g.:
All transmitting disabled! — non standard states messages
Test active on Node 1 — message about running some of tests on the node 1

remaining free space for auxiliary buffers. The table displayed shows the number of packets (buffers) waiting in different queues throughout the CU.
The GMTis used in the CU and is kept with a lithium battery. Effective life of the battery is minimally 15 years under normal operation. The life at disconnected supply is however 3 years only.
The local timevalid on the CU station. This time is set by
(s)ervice (t)ime. It is corrected by
(U)nit (e)dit DI(F)Fparameter to get the GMT, which is kept in the CU.
The distant operator timejis used by the operator, which can be situated in different time zone. It is obtained from GMT by subtracting of parameter
-t, kwhich is found in the file
Morse.parin the operator’s PC.
The local time us used in
(s)ervice (t)ime menu and
in transmitted old monitoring, which creates the monitoring message
completely in the source node. The GMT is used in all other functions
inside the CU, like saving time of logs, Events or time synchronization
(U)nit (e)dit Time sync.
The distant operator time is used for display of logs, Events and (new) Monitoring messages.

The system clock frequency is measured in the course of four seconds with resolution in kHz. Caution! The CU is “dead” for these four seconds. In real operation, this action will cause an CU failure for four seconds. The signal from the on-board RTC (Real Time Clock) is used for measurement, so the accuracy of the clock value obtained cannot be better than the RTC accuracy.
