Yeah. If only folks would keep the subject line in sync with what
they're arguing about, scorefiles would work a whole lot better.

I'm certain I've seen Processor Technology SOLs with SO-259
connectors. I think I've seen at least one with a BNC connector (and
recall being surprised to find that it wasn't an adapter), but even if
I have I'm not sure what this proves, SOLs and other '70s micros being
purchasable as kits, and I'm sure at least some of the pre-assembled
ones were owned by people of soldering skill who would change the
connector if it suited them to do so.
