Back in the early days of radio our current frequency bands were considered 
to be waaay up there in the radio spectrum. When the Navy (I believe it was) 
and their contractors developed coax and the resulting connectors for use on 
board their ships they named them UHF. Since then other conventions have 
been established resulting in todays "decade" definition of the frequency 
bands. 3 to 30 MHZ = HF; 30 to 300 = VHF; 300 to 3000 = UHF; and 3000 MHz + 
= SHF. Or at least that's what I was taught as a new Comm-Elect Officer in 
the Marine Corps 30 years ago. Ham usage is a little different.
