Figure B Miles transmitter attachment

d. Operating the Transmitter. Ensure that the M19 BFA is correctly mounted. Turn the orange key to WEAPON ON. Load the machine gun with M1A1 blank ammunition only (Figure B-6). Fire normally. The sound of the blanks firing will trigger the transmitter. The transmitter will work only as long as the supply of blank ammunition lasts. Once a day, use a clean cloth to remove blank fire residue from the transmitter lens. To test the transmitter, fire a shot burst and watch the firing lamp (Figure B-7). If no light, replace the battery and test again. If still no light, replace the transmitter. Use DA Form 2404 to report the information.
