Firing it up

With everything wired and the back panel buttoned up, the only thing left to do is test your work. For the safety of both the equipment and the operator, I suggest hooking in a pair of power supplies instead of batteries. 

The correct light operation is:

  • With the main power off, all lights are dark.
  • With the main power on and all component switches off, the main power is lit green and the component switches are lit amber.
  • With the main power on, each component switch should light amber and green when turned on.

After verifying polarity of the outputs with a multimeter, plug some gear into the back panel and check that power and video outputs are all good.

If everything checks out on the bench, unplug the power supplies, plug in a pair of batteries, and bring your spiffy new ground station to the field!
