    I have a pile of molex shells and pins. If you need any, let me know...but they're readily available from Digikey and the like.

    That was easy. Now how many of you can identify this sex-less connector?

    Molex made 2 popular sizes of their Nylon connectors (based on pin size) since 1970s.
    Mouser, Digi-Key, Allied Electronics, Newark, and others carry. Radio Shack still sells Molex or a knock-off they import from Asia.
    You will find their connectors in countless American manufactured good (Japanese manufacturers use JST, a competitor to Molex).

    A power or signal interconnect system rated up to 5.0A per circuit with standard brass terminals.

    Molex's Standard .093" pin and socket power connectors are an industry standard connector system based on an .093" pin diameter. The terminals can be used in either crimp housings or crimp receptacles and are capable of carrying up to 14.0A (9.0A with the largest circuit size housings; 17.0A with high-current/low-force terminals).

    Now why would anyone use a GR connector unless you have one of those strange little GR VFO's? I wonder if anyone has a picture of them? I can't even remember how they were powered.

    I have a lot of GR gear, including an admittance meter, a signal generator, coaxial line stretchers, etc.

    It's very common in the industry. I must have ten pieces of equipment that use them, and GR to N adapters are also very common, so I have about twenty of those.
