I don't think you will find one. You're going to have to make one out of a short piece of coax, with a male on each end, and a F-F barrel connector.

Think about it, why would anyone make a connector with one end male and one end female?

No kidding. Sounds about as useful as a DVD rewinder.

It WOULD be fun to send someone on a wild goose chase for such an item though. I think I'll suggest this adapter next time someone asks me what I want for Christmas or my birthday. ;)

] www.therfc.com would carry these adapters,,ive used them on my handhelds, so as not to worry about wearing out the radio bnc when frequently changing antennas....much cheaper to replace a few dollar adapter.

I have one BNC male to a sma female connector. My second connector is SMA male to BNC Female. If I install the sma connector to top of the sma female would this work. What would be my signal lost using this connectors. Please see video. YouTube - Video 3

Yes that would work, but will be alot more lossy on the signal , than when using just one adapter. The attached pic is what you need,,these are the ones i use on my handhelds.

BNC M-F adapters are great to use where the user is connecting and disconnecting cables a lot of the time. This way, the user just needs to replace the adapter when it wears out and not the connector on the radio
