Spelling: RPSMAConnector

"RP-SMA" stands for "Reverse-Polarity Sub-Minature type A". RP-SMA
Connectors [1] are the cousins of SMA-Connectors [2], and provide
identical performance.

Reverse-Polarity connectors differ only by the gender of their center
contact. For example, a male plug has a female center contact.

Reverse-Polarity connectors are commonly used on 802.11 [3] gear due
to America's FCC [4] requirements (Part 15.203) where by such
equipment needs non-standard connectors. Although less common, other
modified SMASAM, SM, AMA, MA, SA, ESMA, SSA, SEA, EMA, SBA, STA, SKA, SPA, SM'S [5] solutions to satisfy the FCC [6] requirements are to
either use "reverse-thread [7]" or "shrouded [8]" connectors.

RP-SMA should be referred to as "RG-SMA" - "Reverse _Gender_ SMA"
