Only problem for hobbyists are these patch panels are expensive. I've bought dozens of ADC, Bittree and Canare 75 ohm panels for work projects in the $1k to $1.5k range but the 50 ohm 2-3GHz Trompeter panels are even more $$.

It's much handier to have all your connections standardized. A BNC will cover everything the amateur is going to do on the amateur side, unless you are running high power stuff. 200 watts up to 4GHz is pretty respectable.
