Variation on W0GLB's approach.  Same board, but drill a 5/8" hole.  Insert a UG-363 Jack-to-Jack Bulkhead Adapter (available from Cedar City Electronics, Mouser, and many others). Connect your coax to each side and your in business. Repeat as necessary for additional coax.  If you need to pass a ground, just get a large brass redi-thread with brass nuts and brass washers (most Ace Hardwares). Run it through the board and secure with nuts and washers.  Sandwich your ground strap on each side with nuts, washers, and NoAlox and you're good!  Used this approach for many years in a house with horizontal sliders. Don't forget to jam the slider with a cut-to-length "burglar stick" so the window can't be opened from outside.
