Use a single or double blank plate and some threaded F barrels. Don't try and drill it with a hand drill..
many thanks for that idea what or where do i get them and what is the best way to make the hole in the plate, sorry for the late reply
pillar drill works best if you need to drill.

cant find them atm, but there are some designed to take 5x BNC sockets, they would take an F or TNC socket

pretty sure CPC do them, but their site seems to be down right now...

The trouble is the OP wants five outlets on a standard 2 gang plate. All the grid systems i've seen max out at four.
I would use grid unit. You can mix and match in a grid plate switches, sockets, fuses the lot and build it up as required with blanks where nothing required.

See here

I have used the double sized faceplates intended for computer sockets but used blank plates drilled to accept two f barrels, so if required the op could have 8 co-axes terminated on the plate


with these


and drilled to accept these


the blank plates I got had two moulding marks on the back in exactly the right place to drill !
