Radio Transmitting Sets AN/ART-13A and AN/ART-13B are medium power, aircraft radio transmitters, designed to provide radio communication by voice, modulated continuous wave telegraphy (MCW), or continuous wave telegraphy (CW).

Either a carbon or dynamic microphone may be used for voice emission.
The audio system is capable of modulating the carrier (100 watts nominal) at least 90 percent for MCW or Voice emission.

When operating with CW or MCW emission, entirely satisfactory performance will be obtained for keying speeds up to 30 words per minute.

Transmission frequencies differ between the Models AN/ART-13A and AN/ART-13B as outlined in the manual.

Shifting from one transmission to another can be accomplished by the conventional method of “hand-positioning” the controls or by using the built-in automatic shifting mechanism known as the “Autotune”.

This automatic mechanism is also utilized to provide remote control of functions required to shift transmission frequency.
