Hello to all;

Please advise me regarding methods and materials to support coax going 
up a tower.  Problems I recognize include:

Overstressing the coax or the connector - I assume this is resolved by a 
stress relief loop at the connector and by supporting it at 
appropriately small intervals, possibly with additional stress relief 
provisions at each support.  At what intervals are support and stress 
relief recommended for typical RG-8 style coax?

Distorting the coax, while supporting the coax - What are permissible 
ways to support it without distorting it?

Weather and UV exposure of the supporting materials - Some support 
materials or device may be inherently resistant to wx and UV; others may 
be useful if they are covered with UV resistant material.  What are some 
of the options?

What am I overlooking?
