    Forgive me if you've seen four identical posts like this. I have absolutely no
    idea what is wrong with my newsreader, but it seems not to like posts to these

    I need a reverse-sense TNC cable connector...where you would expect the male
    pointed pin to be there needs to be a female pin.

    Pasternack has them for $15, but they also have a $100 minimum. That's a lot of
    $15 adapters. Anybody else got another source?

    Are you sure it's not an "F" type connector?

    The TaxYourTwoShits outlets likely have all combinations of connectors
    now. Even GR connectors should be getting popular again in MA! ;-)

    Yeah, I did too. I grew up in a microwave lab where they were always referred
    to as "reverse-sex" devices, and reverse polarity was reserved for bassackwards
    batteries. "Reverse polarity connector" got me about a hundred hits.

    Thanks, gang...

    shared these priceless pearls of wisdom:

    ->I just did a Google for "reverse polarity TNC" and see lots of $3 to $5
    ->connectors at catalog houses like Mouser etc. These seem to be popular
    ->for WLAN for some reason.

    I used a lot of 'em in college, but could count the ones I've seen in
    the last 30 years on one hand. They are nice connectors, electrically,
    but they're huge, and expen$ive.
