Many years ago, I worked in a calibration lab, and after (actually) 
ranting about how crappy a connector an "F" type was, I tested one to 
make a point....  and the damned thing was very clean.  Weird.  And, 
they're very easy to put together, relative to BNCs, for example.  That 
the electrical characteristics are almost identical to BNC connectors is 
something I still don't quite understand, although I believe the 
instruments...  (all HP equip.  <Grin>)
