What's on the back of the receiver? "Belling Lee" or "Binding Posts"?

I don't know of a single adapter for both, but the long way is as shown below, if you don't want to remove the PL259..

I think It might be best for you to make up your own leaded adapter in this case, unless someone knows of a S0239 to Female Belling Lee all in one adapter?

Sorry that's my "bad" it should be PL259 to Belling Lee not SO239 to Belling Lee. You would need all 3 in that configuration.

I'd recommend making up your own lead really. Give me a few mins and I'll find eBay links

Ok so you need S0239 to F Type. Here's a link for that below. Seller in China though

The last picture link you posted shows a "Belling Lee" connector

Good find, I seem to always find the sellers in china. It's SO239 to F Type. But are you sure that's what you need?

If it was me I'd buy the following to make up your own adapter.

Coax lead with plugs on https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TV-Aerial-Ca ... 4014369521

SO239 Connectorhttps://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UHF-PL259-SO239-Fema ... %7Ciid%3A1

Just cut of one of the Belling Lee connectors and wire the SO239 on
