Rockwell-Collins AN/ARC-165

(based on the URG-II technology)

Last updated: 9 April 2005

System: AN/ARC-165

Developed for the Airborne Warning and Control System E-3A aircraft to provide long range 
aircraft to aircraft or aircraft to ground communication links. The AN/ARC-165 was used to 
build other aircraft systems such as the AN/ARC-167 which is two of the AN/ARC-165 systems
and the AN/ARC-194 which is three (3) of the ARC-165 systems (lets hope you have lots 
of DC power available!).

The JTS document is here:

It was replaced (upgraded) by the AN/ARC-230 series (400 watt).
The system is capable of clear and secure voice or data communication: 
simplex or duplex operation in either SSB, ISB, or AME mode on one of 28,000 discrete 
frequencies spaced at 100 HZ intervals in the 2.0 to 29,9999 KHz frequency spectrum. 

Audio Bandwidth, per channel, is 300-3,000 Hz. 

Output power is 1000 watts plus or minus 1dB per channel in ISB mode. 

Receiver sensitivity is 1 microvolt hard for 10 db minimun in AME mode. 

Power requirement: 115 VAC, (400Hz, 3 phase), and 28 vDC 

Also known as the Rockwell-Collins HF-114

Appears the remote control is 514A-1A or 514A-2.  (3-twisted pair cable 
control lines).  I thought those controls were also used for the 618T radios.

Found one reference to 916H-( ) as a URG-II control.

Editor note: There is no reference to the use of a pre/post filter.
