RE: Why so large loop area in female RCA socket?

There are many where the centre pin remains the same size through the entire jack. I really like the Cardas brand, though the ease of soldering the centre pin is somewhat offset by the trickiness of the outer ring. Have done enough now to know some temp adjustments required.

Quite a range of economical to the "make you drool" exotic ones out there that address the spacing you speak of.

Admittedly I did not give the spacing any thought for my original selection.

75 ohm have to be spaced that way to meet spec.
