RA1 - RA6     Rate (0 through 120) on time slots 1 through 6.

RAB     Receiver ABort.

RADCON     Radiological Control manual.

RAMM     Remote AMplifier Monitor. A SLC VAX primary.

RB     Reverse Bend. The section near the upstream end of each SLC arc where the curvature changes direction so that the beams can be steered around toward the IP.
