I used to make 75 ohm F terminators simply using a crimp F connector and 75 ohm resister. Depending on the connector, you probably don't need the cable for yours either.

You could also get these which may not be much more than you'll pay for the components.

Radio Shack's is model/catalog # 278-270 at $3.99 (more, but may be local so no shipping). SummitSource.com is a Steren 200-175 and $1.29. The ShowMeCables.com is P/N A1 380 at $2.15.

The Pomona part number is 3840-50:
