New Coax Connector Tops Performance Records, August 1969 Electronics World

APC-7 (Amphenol Precision Connector - 7 mm) coaxial connectors were standard on network analyzers by the time I entered the microwave design and manufacturing field in the late 1980s. The test equipment we used for maintaining the S-band airport surveillance radar in the USAF (early 1980s) used N coax connectors, and I cannot recall what was used for the X-band precision approach radar. SMA coax connectors were developed in the 1960s, same as the APC-7 connectors, but I don't remember seeing an SMA until I started working for General Electric Aerospace Electronics Systems ... http://www.rfcafe.com/references/electronics-world/coax-connector-tops-performance-electronics-world-august-1969.htm
