Dropout

In general any type of interruption in service. When using a wireless system, a dropout is an area where carrier reception falls below a usable level, which usually causes the receiver to mute (though some older units will emit very loud white noise, like an old radio tuned between stations). In tape recording a dropout is an area of tape that has no signal, possibly due to a fault in the tape’s ability to hold a magnetic charge.
