For cable still on a spool, the best way is to mount it on a pole
and pull _evenly_ and _consistently_.  This is best accomplished
if there is some sort of drag on the spool.

Without a spool, I unroll the winding on the ground by walking
_on_ the cable.  It helps to keep your back foot on the cable,
or have another person follow you, to prevent the cable from
'kicking up', which forms kinks.  It also helps to have a few
hundred feet of open space to do this in.
