Hi, Geoff...

A little Googling and phrase changes (including for a Sony BKM-41HD 
board used in monitors) turned up this info:

The HK-201/202 is a TX/RX Module for high-speed serial transmission 
through coaxial cable of HDTV digital video digital audio and ancillary 
data information. Signal transmission conforms to the SMPTE 292MBTA 
S-004B bit serial interface standard SMPTE 291M/BTA S-005B supplemental 
data standard and SMPTE 299M/BTA S-006B digital audio standard.

The HK-201 TX Module incorporates a 1.48 GHz VCO for the internal 
generation of an SDI clock signal synchronized to an external clock 
parallel data (74.25 MHz). (1.485 GHz SDI clock signal is internally 
generated with 74.25 MHz and 1.4835 GHz SDI clock signal is internally 
generated with 74.175 MHz.)

The HK-202 RX Module incorporates an auto equalizer which supports 
transmission distances of up to 100 meters (distance between 
transmitting terminal (HK-201) and receiving terminal (HK-202)) over 
5C-FB cable (corresponding with type: PD-3079 COOPER RG-6/U type Super 
Low Less Digital Video Coax).

Broadcast equipment dealers that turned up in the search showed prices 
in the thousands.

This parts house showed prices in the dollars.  $3.98:

You'll probably want to make sure the part Nextronics has is indeed the 
one you need.

Maybe they have a CRT for your monitor, too?

Hope this is helpful to you and others on the list.
