Dude...you mean the OLD ethernet backbone stuff? That fat orange cable
you would tap into with the special tapping transceiver? Man, that stuff
has been GONE for over 15 years now.
What are you going to do with the stuff? I have some conventional 72 and
52 ohm coax cable with the BNC connectors on each end for that size of
cable. I was actually planning on throwing the stuff away, so if you
need some, I think I have some cable wtih a few connectors you could have.
IF you need new-ish type stuff and that big, giant coaxial BNC connector
is really what you need (attaches to a cable the size of your THUMB!) I
can put you onto sources of surplus radio and communications parts
that'll be able to help you out.
