HAM RADIO TERMS
 
ACC
(ACCessory)
Adjacent-channel interference
When a receiver is tuned to a specific frequency and interfer-ence is received on a nearby frequency.
AF
(Audio Frequency)
AFC
(Automatic Frequency Control)Automatically compensate frequency drift.
AFSK
(Audio Frequency Shift Keying)
AGC
(Automatic Gain Control)Automatically optimize receiver amplifier gain.
ALC
(Automatic Limiting Control)Limits RF drive level to power amplifier during transmit to pre-vent distortion.
AM
(Amplitude Modulation)
AMSAT
(AMateur SATellite)

ANL
(Automatic Noise Limiter)Eliminates impulse and static noise peaks.
ANT
(ANTenna)
Antenna ground system
Term used for a RF reference potential for some types of an-tennas. Most unbalanced or asymmetrical antennas need agood RF ground.
Antenna impedance
The impedance of an antenna at its resonance. Although anantenna’s impedance fluctuates with the frequency of opera-tion, an antenna should be 50
for most transceivers.
Antenna matching
When the antenna’s impedance at resonance is at optimumperformance for your transmitter output circuit.
Antenna tuner
Device used to match an antenna to the output impedanceof a transmitter.
APC
(Automatic Power Control)Current limiting of power amplifier to prevent damage to fi-nals in high SWR conditions.
APRS
(Automatic Position Reporting System)In conjunction with a GPS and TNC provide position report-ing.
ARES

(ATTenuator)Anetwork designed to reduce the amplitude of a signal.
ATV
(Amateur Television)FSTV, SSTV
Auto patch
Used in repeater operation for telephone interconnect.
Average power
Power measured on standard power meter.
Backscatter
Form of ionosphere propagation via the E and F layers al-lowing stations to hear other stations within the skipzones.
Balun
Asimple transformer used to change an unbalanced inputto a balanced output.
