A system developed to assist maintenance personnel in determining the
repairability of components, printed circuit boards, modules, and so forth .
A high-speed printer that prints teletypewriter characters one at a time in a full-page format .
An antenna reflector in the shape of a parabola. It converts spherical
wavefronts from the radiating element into plane wavefronts .
The error in meter readings that results when you look at a meter from some
position other than directly in line with the pointer and meter face. A mirror mounted on the meter face aids in eliminating parallax error .
Two or more electrical devices connected to the same pair of terminals so
separate currents flow through each; electrons have more than one path to travel from the negative to the positive terminal .
A resistor and diode, connected in series with the input signal, in which the
output is taken across (parallel to) the diode .
Configuration in which the tr spark gap is connected across the two legs of the transmission line one-quarter wavelength from the T-junction .
A resistor and diode, connected in series with the input signal, in which the output is taken across the diode and the negative alternation is eliminated 
A resistor and diode connected in series with the input signal, in which the output is taken across the diode and the positive alternation is eliminated .
