Handheld electrical telecommunications dictionary

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The concise dictionary of electrical telecommunications is a technical lexicon with terms from the field of electrical telecommunications .

In addition to brief explanations, there are also multi-page articles on a special telecommunications technology topic. Furthermore, the standard work also contains telecommunications history and country-specific treatises. Since the books were published on behalf of the Deutsche Reichspost or later by the Deutsche Bundespost , the focus of the topics is on the German characteristics.

For other postal areas, the German Post (Reichspost and Bundespost) also published the concise dictionary of the postal system .
