c. Gain-Bandwlth .Alignment Procedure.
Adjust for optimum gain (approximately that shown in
(1) Gain-bandwidth alignment shall be made
(5) Turn the IST STG BIAS IR5 adjustment
after the gain-bandwidth tests indicate that either the first
stage (2A3) (b(l), (11), and (12) above) or the second
control (fig 3-3) with a screwdriver while observing the
stage (2A2) (b(13), (14), and (16) above) gain-bandwidth
characteristics are out of tolerance Maintain the test

1R5 adjustments react on each other to some extent it

example of an out-of-tolerance gain-bandwidth response
band Refer to b(12) above.
