If you use standard 10Base5 conventions, the connectors are Type N male, so you splice pieces together with F-F type N barrel connectors, and you terminate with female type N 50 ohm terminators. If you can't find female terminators, a male terminator plus a barrel will of course serve.
If I could remember where the box is I have all the originals for
doing this stuff. I gave all my vampire taps away long ago but
somewhere in all this junk I still have the hardware. Just remember,
never ground both ends. :-)
