This ensures that the radio will work if the system architecture changes in the future and where Phase II operation may be required.

Since the 3920B provides fully automated tests and alignment processes, Motorola dealers and end users can now utilize their technical resources to provide higher value services.”
The Motorola APX Auto-Test II Option is available now. To take advantage of this new feature, the 3920B requires Option 220 for Phase II operation. The Aeroflex 3920B has a delivery time of eight weeks upon receipt of order.
