I have a 250 ft. (+/-) cable run to a TR-44 rotator. The spec says 1 Ohm
max cable resistance for "proper operation". 19/29 stranding 16 gauge
satisfies this requirement at 250 ft. Can anyone recommend a good (i.e.
cheap) source? The best price I've been able to find so far is TX Towers
with 2-#12, 6-#16 at $0.89/ ft. Mouser has the exact Belden cable (8621)
but it's over $1.50/ ft. effectively! Only need 7-wire cable. Thanks.

and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
