Joel -

KC8HZ found an Ohio distributor for Nanaboshi connectors (Japanese mfg.) in 2007 and 
was able to order in small quantities.  He ended up ordering 2 male and 2 female -- so he could take the rotor out of the tower and have a ground test cable. 
The connectors cost him about $12 USD each in 2007.
