momentarily to the UNLOAD position then released.
d. In order to keep transmission time to a minimum, messages should be composed so that the
entire message, including signatures, is positioned as close to the top of the page as possible. This
practice reduces transmission time for shorter messages to a fraction of the time normally required to
send a full page either in Mode A or Mode B.
e. Send and receive operations described in paragraphs 2-7.1 and 2-7.2 of TM 11-5815-615-10
