The system is configured for two operator positions and a supervisor and is fully self contained. Communications equipment is provided for VHF/UHF AM, VHF-FM and HF-SSB frequency bands. The radios can be remoted by fiber optics up to 3 km from the tower. A towed trailer transports dual diesel generators, communications rack, ancillary and support equipment. The TSQ-216 mounts on a HMMWV, CUCV or other suitable vehicle. It drives-on/backs-off or backs-on/drives-off a C-130 aircraft. It is helicopter liftable by UH-60L, CH-46 or CH-53 helicopters.
