Re: AstroTAC Analog Operation

The system remains in the Astro Digital Mode until it detects an Analog signal. Only then does the Astro TAC receiver(s) switch to Analog Mode for the Astro TAC Comparator and Quantar Base Station / Repeater. I do not believe the Astro equipment will allow Analog Priority programming.
