One might want to look for books and such published before, say, 
1930.  Someone have a pre-war Terman?  What about RadLab series?

When did the MF, HF, VHF, UHF, SHF, etc sequence for the decades come into use?

Clearly, anything that was written in the last 50 odd years is going 
to equate UHF with Ultra.

However, back in the day, conventional usage might have been different.

All these connector names have varying stories.. BNC (Bayonet Navy, 
Bayonet Neill Concelman (sp?)) etc.  SMA (sub mini A, or is that OSM 
OmniSpectra Mini?) K (for the band it works with) APC-7, GPC-7, etc.
