There are no shortcuts I know of when rolling up coax. Like one of the
other replies mentioned, start a loop with the desired diameter. Secure
it with some electrical tape. Hand roll the rest insuring there are no
kinks. Use electrical tape to secure the roll in a tight bundle. Do not
use duct
tape as the adhesive bleeds after a while and makes a mess.
And the SEAL the ends! Wax works well, coax seal works well, liquid tape
works best of all.
