Just a thought but have you tried Pasternack? They do 'custom' precision cabling including 2.4mm connector options.

Yes, but I have no way to test them. I don't have a 2.4 mm connector gage,
and I am not keen to put 2.4 mm plugs into something very expensive without
checking the pin depth first.

I don't have a 2.4 mm cal kit, so I can't check the return loss.

I would really like to find a male 2.4 mm connector gage and satisfy myself
the cables, even if I get them professionally made.

I believe someone might have some 2.4 mm HP cables. I can put the SMA on
and at least check the pin depth.
