Texas Towers sells what they call R84 which has 2 #12's & 6  #16s'.  It will 
work fine however it is a little pricey at $1.19 @  foot.
Why spend big bucks for rotor cable.  Put the starter cap at the rotor  which 
leaves six wires.  Run two 12-2 house wires in  parallel.  Don't worry if 
they are regular house wire.  The  stuff I put up in FL lasted ten years and 
just BEGINNING to  crack.  I wish i could take credit for the idea...I stole 
it from  K8CC!
