Tom, I think you will find that it is our flexible version of RG217.
A "mini tower or mast close to the tower and high enough so the loop will
just clear the ground at 0 degrees and have a bit of slack at 360 degrees
is relatively simple and effective. Plastic sleeves such as the power
company uses on guy wires could be used on the tower legs to minimize
abraision during rotation.
