You certainly don't need a sparky for that. Look at the cable and see if it says RG6 or RG59 on the jacket. Go down to the local HD, Lowe's, or hardware and buy a small pack of male twist-on RG6 or RG59 ends( you'll only need 2, but they come in packs of 5). On the pack it will diagram how to strip the cable to prepare for the ends. You'll also need to buy the appropriate coupler. This is a barrel shaped device with females on both ends that the new cable ends will screw into. That's it!
