Re: Type G plugin versions

I was partly wrong. Tek retooled the front panel for BNC, but not until 1967. From 1963 through 1966, they used the UHF front panel with a square-flange BNC jack and plastic trim covering the annular gap. The letter-series plugins built this way are CA, D, G, and L. Others like the K were retooled immediately, if the catalogs are right.

I have plugins of each construction. One of my scopes, a 545, was definitely field-modded, since it was built in the 1950's. It doesn't have the trim and it looks a bit awkward without it.

Beaverton 535A switched to BNC at 31260, but that doesn't tell us anything about Guernsey.

My 535A and G are Guernsey-built. The 535A is s/n 101936, and the G is s/n 101127. They both have BNCs which look like they were factory-fitted, though they are of the special Tek type with enlarged flanges to fit the UHF connector hole.
