    Actually I prefer to secure them at the top coax arm and then let them 
run thru the others without being secured. It's very time consuming to tape 
the cables, run the tower up and see if it's right (it'll always be too long 
or too short), run it down, make an adjustment, repeat many times.

    When the tower is lowered, the cables just lay on the ground until you 
raise it.
