Hi, I'm looking for an adaptor for my UHF (PL259 I believe) connector here:

To the connector here:


Anyone know where I can purchase one?

I've looked around on Jaycar's website but I'm not quite sure what will be the correct adaptor.

Not sure why you need an adapter , they fit into one another?
Or do you mean you want to turn male into female ?
In which case you need a female/female adapter.

The connector type shown are known as
Belling Lee connectors. They're used for 75 ohm coax cable types.
PL259 are quite different (and larger) and also a 50ohm connector.

This is what's coming out of my wall, and the cable I'm using to connect to my tuner is this they will not fit.

The 2 in your 2nd photo are tge sme plug.
In your first post you show a male (plug)
and a female (socket). The sockets have a larger hollow center pin and the outer ring has the slots in to to allow it to expand over the plug.

Jaycar will have, try also Mitre 10 / Bunnings or even Warehouse

It's a PAL (or Belling Lee) plug, not PL259.
You need a PAL adaptor Female to Female. Jaycar appear to have only Male to Male.
Try the Warehouse.

You're right, are there any such adaptors like the ones I'm looking for though?

You could also get a new cable with male to female connectors instead of male to male.

OK, thanks guys, I've got a better idea of what to look for now. I'm off on a mission to the shops now to try and find the one I want.

As Bigglez says. Yes you can get them, but it's probably cheaper to get anew cable from The Warehouse that has female on one end and a male on the other

Or just have a wander around Surplustronics at the top of Queen Street. 
They will probably have something suitable, or just cut off one of the existing plugs and fit a socket (also available from Surplustronics!)
