A category of immigrants replacing the earlier categories for nationals of under-represented countries and countries adversely ‘affected' by the Immigration and Nationality Act Amendments of 1965 (P.L. 89-236). The annual limit on diversity immigration was 40,000 during fiscal years 1992-94, under a transitional diversity program, and 55,000 beginning in fiscal year 1995, under a permanent diversity program.
Receiver design which picks up a radio signal simultaneously at multiple locations and intelligently switches or combines to yield the best continuous signal.
A method of setting up a wireless system reciever so there is a minimum of dropouts (no sound). A diversity system uses two or more antennas to pick up the signal. A processor in the reciever decides which signal is stronger and silently and quickly switches to it. This system just about totally eliminates multi-path dropouts. see also drop out; multi-path
The technique of using more than one antenna to ensure that the received signal strength is always maximized.

the large number of antibodies and T cell antigen receptors that can be produced by the immune system; by extension, the large number of antigens that can be recognized and to which responses can be made.
A method of reception providing protection from signal loss due to multipath nulls, which are localized small areas with a very low RF signal level caused by multipath propagation. See True Diversity and Phasing Diversity.
