, receive-after-transmit time delay
is the time
interval between (a) the instant of keying
off the local transmitter to stop transmitting and (b) the instant the local receiver output
has increased to 90% of its steady-state value in response
to an rf signal
from a distant transmitter.
Note 1: The rf signal from the distant transmitter must exist at the local receiver input prior to, or at the time of, keying off the local transmitter.
Note 2: Receive-after-transmit time delay applies only to half-duplex operation.
