Re: SMB Adaptor (again)

They are pretty cute, but I've not seen 50 ohm versions. Do they exist? And if they exist, do they mate with their 75 ohm cousins? (That may be illegal in some states)

Clearly my complete unfamiliarity with RF equipment of any kind betrays me.

They're awfully cute little connectors. I'm a bit surprised that they weren't
used more frequently on the various plug-in families: space is quite limited
on those front panels.

My main exposure to RF connectors is the tiny, right angle coax connectors
used on modern laptops for the WiFi antennas. I expect that they are not
rated for a large number of connect/disconnect cycles.
