    Anyone can help me where to find the part needed to connect my outdoor external antenna to the receiver.
    My external cable ended with N male type
    See pictures.

    I get all my odd pigtails and mating connectors from e-Bay. They have everything. The only problem is most suppliers are in China and it takes a while for stuff to arrive.

    Instead of a straight N to SMA adapter, you should have a short length of thin coax between the connectors. This will take the stress off of the SMA connector on your RC unit. You need something like this: --> 8in N female jack to SMA male plug RF Pigtail Cable LMR195

    In your second pic it looks like you already have the adapter for the N cable. So to fit that on your RC you need a RP-SMA Male to SMA Female
