I trust that Jim will not mind me sharing his interesting
post from an eham discussion thread from last year:

The 11 pin plug/socket used by Heath and some others, and
for relays, has a correct name:

It is "magnal".

"11 pin octal" is an oxymoron, because "octal" means "having 8"

Don't ask how I know this.
