Anyone willing to contribute jpeg images of  AN-2  avionic equipment or instrumentation.....
Please send them here. I could also use help in gathering info for this page......

I am also seeking technical and trouble-shooting data on the GIK-1 Induction Compass system
which has the sensor mounted in left lower wing tip.......

We also need wiring diagrams, pin-outs, schematics, etc. on any / all Avionics for AN-2.

ARK-9 Operating Instructions

The ARK 9 ADF  will only work with the 115V/ 400 Hz inverter running and the ADF
circuit breaker switched on.

ARK 9  ADF controls:

The large knob at the top right selects the operating mode.
         First setting is " off"
         Second mode is normal ADF

With the two frequency selector knobs you dial in the desired beacon radio
The active ADF station will be indicated by a green lamp glowing next to the
frequency selector knob and the big "Radiokompass" Indicator will point to
that beacon or radio station.(mode name is "Kompass")

The small knobs next to the selector knobs are for fine tuning.

The strength of the input signal is indicated by the small gauge on the top of the
ARK 9 control panel.

When you select ADF" on the Intercom subscriber box, you will hear the beacon
Id-tone codes.

         Third mode setting is "ANT"

In this mode the ARK-9 will act as a simple midwave radio reciever.

        Fourth mode setting is "Frame"

In this mode here you can use the directional frame antenna without the sense antenna.

Here you can manually turn the frame antenna with the small left-right
switch labeled "Rama"  (upper right corner of ARK-9 control panel)

Just below this switch is the volume control knob.

The purpose of the left top switch next to the meter is yet unknown to me,
(this may select the active ADF station????? someone please advise!)

Below is a switch were you can select "modulated" or "unmodulated"
signal. The "unmodulated" choice makes the CW ID-tone codes easier to

Below the ARK-9 control panel you will find a switch for selecting either
"first" or "spare" ADF.
