You can, you will need two extension cables with "f " connectors at both ends and a male to male / back to back " f " connector, Maplins or eBay are your best bets for sourcing them.

you can buy joining pieces from diy shop and just buy 2 metres of sat coax cable (make sure its sat cable) normal tv coax is no good

homebase do the joining kit id imagine they would be easier for you to get to than maplns or waiting on fleabay

you need this item no 270419533976 plus a length of sat coax cable 2m should be enough

Thanks, glad you are sorted, as jamstaruk says, it is an easy job, once you have the cable etc.

Good luck.
