Nav panel lighting

1 post in this topic

Can anyone tell me why our USAF H1's are wired so that you can only see the SCNS mode advisory lights if you turn the nav instrument lighting rheostat up?  It turns out that these lights are wired into the dimmer rheostat.  So if you were flying during daylight, and you wanted to see the SCNS status lights, you'd have to turn the instrument lights on.  This seems wrong to me, especially since the pilot/copilot advisory lights are not wired this way.

      We have a 74 year C-130H1 with a #2 VHF radio that wil not turn off through SCNS. Turning off SCNS also does not shut off the radio. We have swapped IDCUs, RTs and mounts, and have checked the Power on/off signal wire for continutity and a short to ground. Everything checks out. Also, Bypassing Secure voice has no effect.
       
      Has anyone seen this before or have any out of the box ideas? We've got a head scratcher here.
