I like the idea of getting something with the connectors already attached. From my experience to have about 3 feet of coax is a real plus. I am sure we could find a similar item with say 6 feet of coax and cut in half gives the 3 feet needed.
Another route is to attach a connector using something like these links.

I’d just get something like this:
And cut it in half for two of the kits.
I can do crimp connectors on rg8x no problem, done them a bunch of times for pl-259s.
BNC connectors look fairly straightforward given the right tools, and I’d be delighted to learn how to to bnc connectors (and I’d be happy to buy the appropriate crimpers as well, if I haven’t already got one).
RG-174 I am unexperienced. But it’s always worth learning!
My personal preference would be to build an antenna using a BNC connector, and then use adapters to go from BNC to whatever the radio needs.
One thing I have done in the past is cheat by buying a short cable with the connectors I need on each end and whacking it in half.
