Go on to eBay and search for "Microwave pigtail" - you'll get 100's of them come up - scroll through through them till you find one the right length for you and with the right type of connectors on it - you almost certainly need SMA type connectors: male SMA (with centre pin) or female SMA (with centre hole).

Or go round to your local Radio Shack if in the USA or Maplin in the UK.
