Put a shim under the boom on the cradle so that there is some clearance.  I
use half pieces of sunlight resistant PVC that have ID about the same as
boom OD.  Run the coax(es) from feedpoint(s) along top of boom and center of
cradle.  Insert black plastic ty-wrap under boom and around coax and boom.
It does not need to be real tight.  Use a couple of extra ty-wraps for
insurance.  Run coax straight down from center of cradle.  Rotate beam to
180 degrees, remembering the direction of rotation.  Dress coax down and in
the opposite direction of rotation to the opposite side of tower.  Tape or
otherwise secure to tower leg.  Have someone rotate to opposite 180 setting
to ensure sufficient leeway in coax.
