Default Help with procuring rf materials

Hello! I'm pretty new to rf, currently working on a project involving radios and raspberry pi boards which amounts to me just pretty much hodgepodging a lot of stuff together at this point. I've been trying to find spools of mini coax (1.13 mm ~ 1.37mm) and hirose ufl connecters and crimper so that I can make my own cables at my own length any time I need, but I am having a devil of a time finding anything. All my searches have led me to is foreign companies that sell in massive bulk through catalogs. Is that the only real way to get a hold of this kind of stuff? Any help is appreciated!

Default Hirose connectors might be the hard part.

+1 on going to Tessco for the coax. The hard part will probably be the Motorola Hirose connectors. I have had to pillage these off of older equipment, since these are very hard to come by. Sometimes auction sites will have military/government surplus that will have radio gear with the Hirose connector on it. Good luck.
