Could anyone suggest
a book, manual, or web site that shows how to loop coax and rotor
control lines on crank ups?  The tower came with coax stand offs at
each tower section for this purpose.  What is the preferred method of
attaching cables to these stand offs?  How do you determine how large
of a loop to use?

I just let cables hang loose and coil up on the ground when the tower is cranked down. The cable lays in a nice little pile at the base of the tower when lowered and you don't need to worry about loop lengths. The coax standoffs just keep the cables from getting tangled in the tower when going up or down. YMMV, but it works for me.
