 Cable types like RG6 and RG59 stand for?

The "RG" is short for "Radio Guide," a term that dates back to the World War II era, when the military made heavy use of coaxial cable, and developed a set of standards to specify different grades of coax and their applications. Even though we still refer to coaxial cables by their original RG numbers today, these standards are now obsolete in regard to actual military use, and have all been brought under the umbrella of current mil spec MIL-C-17.
