I have used it, with large rotor loops, and it's done well. My cable is
over 15 years old now, and in need of replacement, which is no surprise.
I do not use coax arms down the tower, I only use one standoff at the
top, and the cable hangs down. I tie it off with a bungee cord. When
retracted, I loop the excess and hang it from my raising fixture. I
avoid a lot of bending that way, and it has held up well.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Using Belden 9913 on a crankup tower?
Could somebody tell me if Belden 9913(not 9913 flex)is usable on a
crankup tower. What I am interested in, is if it is bendable enough when
the tower is cranked down or will it bow out too much? Should I go to a
more flexable cable for the run up the tower, or is it workable? This is
for a 51 ft. crankup. Thanks for your help.
