Connector Gender - Male or Female?
Coax connector gender is most times different than nuts & bolts. Since coax cable has 2 strings of wire (shield and core), gender is determined by the middle (core) wire. If you look at a connector and it has a pin in the middle, it's a male. If the connector has a hole in the middle, it's a female.
The coax connector on the right is an FME Male connector. Note the pin in the middle.
Reverse Polarity (RP) connectors with be the opposite. They will have the treading (inside or outside) the same however the pin / hole will be reversed.
