Description

For the radio transmission feature (e.g. as used in pilot-controlled airport lighting), you must define a radio frequency and time parameters.

It follows the principle used in many U.S. airfields: A defined number of clicks on a particular frequency must be transmitted within a 5 seconds time window. If then the click count enables the system, it will run for a defined time period (count-down). The user can reset that count-down time anytime by retransmitting the needed number of clicks again within 5 secs.
