I discovered that it is pretty much impossible to find specs for Gilbert 360, USA or AHS crimp connectors. You literally have to download the Corning catalog to find any information and all it tells you is model numbers and how to install them. Pico-Macom doesn't seem to be interested in specs either. In stark contrast PPC gives insertion loss and return loss numbers for their popular EX6-XL: The specs on the Belden SNS (aka Thomas & Betts Snap-n-Seal) connectors. And the Perfect Vision PV6UE-05: The recurring theme in my web searches was that hex crimp connectors (and their associated specifications) are getting rather hard to come by. My point remains: what's not to like about swage connectors? Before I forget, another major feature of modern swage connectors is that several of them are rated for all manner of shielding and jacket materials. You guys sound somewhat like the geezers at the ham club that grumble that the new kids don't have to know code to get any level of amateur radio license.
