Where can I find a N2K female to female adaptor?

I've looked everywhere and can't find one. My radar box has a simnet to n2k female wire, and this won't connect to the n2k t connectors on my backbone due to having both female connectors, so I need a male/male connector piece - but I can't seem to find one anywhere. Any ideas?

A 1m drop/spur cable should do it?

You could cut the cable and put on a field-installable connector with the female end. That's what I would do.

For my 3G radar install I used an extra simnet cable I had and cut one end off and placed the appropriate N2K field installable end. Maretron makes them and the local West Marine also sell another brand of N2K field installable connector as well. I've used both and they both do the job.

That sounds like it would do the trick, thanks!
