    TracVision 6-HP Technical Manual (KVH Part Number 54-0166). The “=TV” configuration command printed in the manual is incorrect. For your TracVision 6-HP system, the correct configuration command is =TVG6HPT , not =TVG6HP . You will need to enter the =TVG6HPT command whenever you replace the main printed circuit board (PCB) or calibrate the antenna gyro, at the steps noted below.

In an ideal installation, the antenna is mounted four feet (1.2 m) above and four feet (1.2 m) away from the radar (measured from the center of the antenna dome to the center of the radar).
