WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. – LocusUSA, a world leader in the area of radio frequency (RF) capture for radio analysis and location, will be hosting a complimentary 30-minute webinar entitled, “Why Automatic Frequency Control is Important and What You Need to Know About It”, on Thursday, July 6, 13 and 20 at 10 a.m. (ET) and Tuesday, July 11 and 18 at 1 p.m. (ET). Individuals who perform radio maintenance for their company or agency are welcome to attend the webinar.

During the webinar attendees will learn:

  • How AFC controls and corrects the radio’s oscillator drift temporarily, masking a maintenance problem until the radio fails.
  • How to recognize a radio that requires multiple attempts to affiliate with the network before AFC engages, unnecessarily taxing the system.
  • Why a radio like this, even while temporarily appearing to be within spec, should be brought in for maintenance.
  • How to identify poorly aligned radios without user intervention.
