Extend internal antenna to second PCI-e wifi?

I currently have an HDX16t with an Intel 5100 which of course isn't supported by OS X. With HP's brilliant Whitelist, I can't simply swap it out with another one either. My laptop has a secondary PCI-E slot (originally for optional TV Turner), and I was interested in putting in a WiFi card there to bypass the 104 error. I then run into the problem of the antenna cords not being long enough.


So my question is if there is any solution to extend or splice the current antenna cords to enable me to plug them into the secondary wifi card (using the original one is not important)??? If so, what are the connectors at the end of the cords called?
