Originally intended for use as a video connector in radar applications, UHF coaxial connectors are general purpose units developed for use in low frequency systems from 0.6 - 300 MHz. Invented for use in the radio industry in the 1930’s, UHF is an acronym for Ultra High Frequency because at the time 300 MHz was considered high frequency.
UHF connectors feature a threaded coupling. UHF connectors are popularly used because of its ease of assembly. The UHF solderable screw-on termination feature requires no specialized crimping tools.
