    Hi
    I came across an electrical symbol that looks like a capacitor, but it has a caption underneath it that says "jumper." I know what a jumper is, but I'm not sure what this symbol implies. Thanks for any help.

    It's a capacitor symbol, but next to it it says "jumper." This came from an annotated schematic, and every other capacitor has specs for it

    Is it a solder-bridge jumper? The symbol is similar, but not identical to a capacitor. Again, without an image from you, we are only guessing. John

    Like I said before, it looks exactly like a capacitor symbol, but right beside it it says "jumper." Sorry I don't have a picture. I found it on a piece of paper.

    It might be an rf feedthrough capacitor.

    Could it be an "optional" capacitor, and in your schematic it is to be replaced with a "jumper"?

    I scanned the schematic into my computer. Here's what it looks like.

    that is clearly a capacitor symbol. The "jumper" notation is confusing. Can you scan more to put it in context?

    Maybe "jumper" is used as the verb. In any case, the end result should be the same.
