AMPLITRON—See CROSS-FIELD AMPLIFIER .
AMPLITUDE—The size of a signal as measured from a reference line to a maximum value above or below the line. Generally used to describe voltage, current, or power  .
AMPLITUDE DISTORTION—Distortion that is present in an amplifier when the amplitude of the output signal fails to follow exactly any increase or decrease in the amplitude of the input signal  .
AMPLITUDE MODULATION—Any method of varying the amplitude of an electromagnetic carrier frequency in accordance with the intelligence to be transmitted .
AMPLITUDE STABILITY—Amplitude stability refers to the ability of the oscillator to maintain a constant amplitude in the output waveform .
AND CIRCUIT—See AND GATE .
Modulation in which the angle of a sine-wave carrier is varied by a modulating
ANGLE OF INCIDENCE
The angle between the incident wave and the normal .
ANGLE OF INCLINATION
The angular difference between the equatorial plane of the earth and the
plane of orbit of the satellite .
