Two comments:
1. Yes, there is a cable-end equivalent to an SO 238, that matches to a PL 239. (I use them, but don't remember the designation)
2. I thought the myth of "High insertion loss" had been shot down completely (recently, too).

Bill, the barrel connectors are double-ended SO-239 females, intended for
use as a union between two PL-259 male coax lines. Use them for temporary or
emergency patchwork, because the insertion loss in these connectors is high.
