The hole is dug, the tower will be up in, I hope, a matter of weeks, the
store room has been inventoried and normal service will be resumed soon.
Amongst all the 'stuff' I have a 100 metre drum of bright red CAT5 cable.
What I don't have is anything really suitable to connect my Yaesu G800SDX to
its' control box.
Question. Will CAT5 do the job?
Distance is about 55 metres, say 180 feet.
I would use one pair each for the motor winding and three separate wires for
the direction pot, shield would be bonded to the tower and ground system.
