I made a backpack for my camera operator to wear while shooting. It has a light weight wooden framework and has a 12v rechargeable battery, video rx and screen built in. It also has enough space to store the cam mount transmitter and screen. I attached a 3/4" piece of pvc with a cap that sticks out the top. I wanted to attach my range video rx antenna on top of that pipe. I though I could use a couplr of feet of co-ax cable to extend it out but I found out the connectors on the rx and antenna were smaller than regular cable. Anyone have a low cost idea on how to get this done? Will extending it like this affect my range at all? Antennas seem simple but I know they are complicated, I just dont know enough about them to come up with a solution. Thanks --- Chris

These guys will make any cable you want with any connector. On 900MHZ if you extend it by a foot, it's not going to be significant. Even if you go 2 feet you're fine IMHO. Plus you could add this antenna to make up for the cable loss

Thanks for the links... I ordered the cable I needed. Now I need to figure out a way to attach my screen and TX to one neck strap. Im trying to figure out the least bulky way to do that where I can still store everything thats needed into the backpack.
