Installation Procedures Overview This section provides installation procedures for the 9.3-Meter Andrew Earth Station Antenna. The installation procedures include instructions on the following antenna com- ponents: • Mount • Reflector-to-Mount Assembly • Reflector • Subreflector • Enclosure • Feed System (C-band) Foundation Before beginning the installation process on the ground mount assembly, ensure that Preparation the foundation has been prepared. Foundation specifications are provided by An
A-325 Tensioning During the installation process, there are several references to the A-325 hardware ten- sioning procedure. The A-325 hardware must be properly tensioned to avoid slippage between bolted surfaces under high loads. Slippage can cause the corresponding assembly to move, causing antenna misalignment. When designated, the A-325 hard- ware should be tightened according to the following tensioning procedure. NOTE: Tensioned bolts are for final connections only and should not be loosen
The three-point mount is an elevation-over-azimuth mount optimized for geostationary Tripod Ground Mount Assembly satellite applications. The mount enables continuous elevation adjustment from 0 to 90°. Azimuth adjustment is ±90° and divided into three 120° ranges with 30° overlap. Follow the subsequent procedures for proper installation of tripod ground mount assembly. Azimuth Beam Assembly All ground mount hardware is type A-325. Lubricate all A325 bolt threads with supplied Step 1 stick wax.
