kHz MHz

digression - it is curious why is it that countless people on forums like this one cannot properly write the units they are using? It is understood that this forum attracts many amateurs, and uneducated people as well, but guys there are some limits to the ignorance. "h" means hour (or prefix hecto). "Hz" means Hertz. Others can get what you are trying to say only because of the context- otherwise it is often complete nonsense. I see many times "mhz", "a", or another idiotic abbr like hrz. "m" means milli, "M" means mega, "k"-kilo, "K"- Kelvin, "A" -Amperes, "V"-Volts, "s"-second. There are no other options.
