comment Capitalization of “RF” versus “dc”
I think the "Vac" convention is quite old, and it just decapitalizes the letters instead of putting them in a subscript when the software used for typesetting doesn't allow subscripts.

comment Capitalization of “RF” versus “dc”
@MSalters I have seen it in numerous published papers. Enough to become curious about it and ask this question! So I guess there is at least some tradition behind it.

comment What do you call a man who knows well how to fix his household appliances?
@onomatomaniak, one can argue that if you'd marry him, you will never see brand new anything for the rest of your life.
