There is disclosed, in a coaxial transmission medium connector, a female center conductor element having a tubular male-center-conductor-element-receiving region extending from an open end to a blind end and which is characterized by an inner surface which diverges from a first position proximate the open end to a second position rearwardly toward the blind end in conjunction with a wall thickness which tapers from a maximum value proximate the first position to a less thick region at a second position toward the blind end. With this configuration, electrical contact between a male center conductor element and the female center conductor element of a slightly axially misaligned mating pair will be very nearly diametrically opposed and hence limit signal degradation at the junction. Typically, the coaxial transmission medium connector is still further characterized by the provision of at least one pair of diametrically opposed longitudinal slots extending from the open end toward the second end to provide a spring bias to aid in grasping the male member within the female member.
