I'm coming down the home stretch with a tower, the first for me in this QTH, 
and with the long run to it (180' or so) am using FSJ4-50b cable -- something 
that I've not used before. I am digging a trench (almost done) for a 3" conduit 
containing rotor, steppir, extra control (cat-5), and some extra pulling cords 
for the future. I have 8 gauge UF cable going in the trench NOT in the conduit 
for an outlet near the tower; I have some massive 75 ohm catv hardline also 
going in the trench for no good reason other than I haven't used it for 
anything else in the 3 years I've had it, and it's better to store it below 
ground :-)
  The big question: Do I put the FSJ4-50b in the conduit or not? I see that 
some folks have been using it above ground... buried, must it be in the
