So many of the reverse SMA stuff now made for WiFi, it was only a matter
of time before it turned up on Ham gear.   Remember, that's how the
infernal SO239/PL259 got used, it was very common in baseband video use
at the time.  In both cases, it does the job (maybe not on UHF in the
case of the 239/259) and it's overiding quality, it's cheap in quantity
and easy to get.

In any case, you can get adapters to BNC etc now.
