none of the above.
I have been in many microwave relay stations, all of the RF patchbays I've
seen use a 75 ohm version of an SMB connector, it is somewhat larger in
diameter than the more common 50 ohm SMB.
This connector is fairly small overall, and usually gold plated. It takes
a greater amount of effort to mate these up compared to a 1/4" phone plug
or similar. Once mated, they remain very securely together.
