Coaxial patch panel

Hello group, was wondering whether you have seen a product that fits
my requirement.
I have 6 coaxial (CT100) cables running down from roof to basement.
I would like to terminate the 6 cables in some kind of a patch panel
that hard wires the cables from the roof but let's me plug in
different cables in the front.
I have 8 cables running up to different rooms and would like to be
able to switch what coaxial sources they are using.
Closes I have come to such a product is this:

is not exactly what I want as it requires further short coax patch
cables to connect between sources.

Why not just make one? You'll obviously be doing at least some of the wiring yourself so it's little more work.
Depending on just how many sockets you need a two gang electrical blank plate should be fine - you could fit three rows of six or more easily. Chassis mounting sockets are available from Maplin etc - they fit through a hole and they have a nut at the back to secure them. The jumpers you can also make up.

Earth bar with 8 off F sockets
Approx £8 plus postage (buy the matching F plugs at the same time)
F plug/sockets fit CT100 cable. Make your own patch cables.
Fitting 'screw on' F plugs (if the pictures f**k up try Microsoft's Internet explorer browser)

Grandad, What was HF? Is that the old radio that worked at Morse frequencies and used a hand-cranked modulator?
I've got a Hello Kitty phone tag round here with glowing eyes. A bit anorakky (not to mention tacky), but I can't be the only ancient one who's TCR-honed Proopsenses saw what was obviously some sort of 2GHz Gunn diode for fiddypee and came over all acquisitional. Signals these days just aren't in the same ballpark as they used to be. There's no room for WW2 naval plumbing in comms any more.
I must admit I've still got plenty of 239/259 kit around here, but it's only ever used as EHT connectors to things like G-M tubes.

How about using MK's logic grid system? This uses clip-in modules which go into a frame and box with between 2 and I think 12 modules. You could use a six-way box. You can get co-ax socket modules for it. Fairly expensive but very neat. The box is supposed to be surface mount but I sank one into the wall. Looks good.

You can get surface mount or flush plates for most grid systems - the rest is the same for either.
It's a pretty expensive way to do this job though - much cheaper to buy a blank plate and fit panel mounting co-ax sockets to it direct.
