CI cables are 50 Ohm coax cables with "N" connectors. The outer shell 
is quite a bit larger than a BNC or TNC.

But this may be correct - the inner portion of a BNC/TNC connector 
without the locking ring may just fit; they're all constant impedance 
50 ohm connectors.

Modulo "N" to BNC adapters, yes.
