RATIO OF TRANSMITTED POWERS
The power ratio (FSK versus AM) that expresses the overall improvement of FSK transmission when compared to AM under rapid-fading and high-noise conditions
Time constant of a resistor-capacitor circuit; equal in seconds to the resistance value in ohms multiplied by the capacitance value in farads  .
An RC circuit in which the output is taken from the resistor .
A filter used in applications where load current is low and constant, and voltage regulation is not necessary .
An RC circuit in which the output is taken from the capacitor .
A circuit containing resistance and capacitance arranged in a particular manner to perform a specific function .
An oscillator in which the frequency is determined by resistive and capacitive
The opposition offered to the flow of an alternating current by the inductance,
capacitance, or both, in any circuit .
A low-noise amplifier that uses a nonlinear variable reactance as the active
element instead of a variable resistance. Also called a parametric amplifier .
A tube connected in parallel with the tank circuit of an oscillator. Provides a signal that will either lag or lead the signal produced by the tank .
