Assuming you're talking about Andrew LDF4, the Andrew part numbers are:

L44Z - splice
L44P - UHF male
L44U - UHF female

I'm not sure any of these are actually made anymore, but can be found in 
stock at some dealers, and commonly at fleamarkets. Also RF Industries 
(RFI) makes a UHF male for LDF4 if I'm not mistaken.
