Hope this goes to the right place, didn't find a Wireless Networkbuilding forum.

We would like to move the bundled antennas on some base stations (Handlink WG-601, some Zyxel and Buffalo models) with an antenna cable.
However, unlike many outdoor antennas, bundled antennas in all reverse SMA base stations I know of come with grooves on the inside.

All cables we've been able to find are from base station (grooves on the outside) to outdoor antennas (grooves also on the outside).

Can you point me to a place I can find cables that go from reverse SMA base station (grooves on the outside) to a bundled antenna (grooves on the inside).
Ie. just move the connector from the base station with cable.
