the following five sections, from which the standard M
diagonally opposite conductors, 3 feet shorter than the
Mk 5(a), M Mk 6(a), and M Mk 6(h) sweeps are
remaining two conductors, are connected at their outer
ends and form the "short leg" of the Q-3 cable. To this
short leg may be connected a K-4 electrode, a CL-1
PQ-3 quad section;
cable, or a CL-3 cable. The remaining two conductors
are connected at their outer ends and form the "long leg"
AQ-3 quad section;
of the Q-3 cable. To this long leg may be attached a 900-
foot single section of S-3 cable or a CL-3 cable. These
cables may be terminated with either a K-4 electrode or
CL-1 and CL-3 cables; and
a CL-3 cable.
The Q-3 cable is divided into two sections, the PQ-3
section (air cooled) and the AQ-3 section (water
cooled). The junction between the PQ-3 and AQ-3
sections is marked with a band of red rubber, and the
cable should be towed so that the red band is in the water
insulated aluminum conducting cables wrapped
at all times.
