    Hi, looking at the picture above,
    the ones called "plugs" are also called males.
    the ones called "jacks" are also called females (having an external thread)

    so sma male has a pin, rp-sma male has a hole in the center

    sma female has a hole, rp-sma female has a pin in the center.

    RP stands for Reverse Polarity

    so a female with reverse polarity has a pin inside.
    a male with reverse polarity has a hole inside.

    The image by tferrari is pretty clear. What is your confusion?
    This is another version of the table: [​IMG]
    No one calls them "plugs" and "jacks" - that's a term from the 1950's.
