The fixed station controller forms the second most important element of a radio communications system, and is the means of managing the information flow in/out over the radio system.

Starting with the launch of the Pye radio-telephone system concept in 1946, three core types of operator control arrangements were made available.

Local control where the operator sat in front of the fixed station and directly operated the front panel controls.

Extension control where the transmitter/receiver was located within 200 feet of the operator.

Remote control where the fixed station was located a considerable distance from the operator, and Post Office telephone lines or a separate radio link were used to interconnect the two sites.
