Re: We can't be having descriptive nomenclature.

I have some old General Radio gear that had sexless RF connectors. What would we call them today?

Trans-??? They were used on RF signal generators, from the days when frequency was understood to mean cycles per second unless otherwise specified. Kind of like we don't say "liters metric" or "Feet imperial". No need.

More importantly, would be be fined in Canada for not calling them whatever the right thing is today?
