Dave -

Thanks for the informative URL. I have been working for the military one way
or another for almost 40 years and I still do not recall seeing any. Like I
always say "tuition never comes cheap regardless of how you pay for it". So,
even if this project does not ever progress to where I would like it, I will
have learned something, and for that it was worth it. Thanks - Mike

These triax connectors are made by Trompeter, which was revealed by a 
bit of ebay searching. Here's the catalog:


They describe the history of the connectors in the PDF, if you're 
interested. It has a lot to do with MIL 1553B stuff.

PS Pasternack has an amusing reputation around our telescopes - their 
SMA adapters fall apart when looked at sideways, so we generally just 
toss 'em when we run into them.

PPS Look at the Pasternack website with any browser but IE, and the 
text in the menus doesn't render at all! It's impossible to navigate 
their site with Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, etc.
