I'm using a 6 ft roof tower to support my satellite/VHF/UHF array.

With all the rain we've had in the Washington, DC area of late, I've come
across a problem with the feedlines and control cables that run across my
roof and down the side of the house into the shack (which is in the

The cables (2 rotor; 1, 7/8" heliax; 1, 1/2" heliax, 2 RG8x) form a path
for the rain to run down (to the ground), and as a result I've noticed
that dampness has developed in the basement.

What I need to know is a method for elevating the cables off the roof as
they traverse it before going down the side of the house. 

Thanks in advance!
