The answer to your question is absolutely. Champion Radio Products
sells a product called PreLube 6.  It's a polymer enhanced lubricant and
preservative designed specifically for cable.  I've been using it for awhile
and I think it is a great product.

I have a 44 ft fold over, crank up tower that I plan to do some antenna 
maintenance in the next couple of weeks.  I will have the tower folded 
over so I can easily reach the antennas mounted on the top of the tower.

My question is while I have the tower folded over is it a good idea to 
use a lubricant on the crank up pulleys, cables, etc., while I have easy 
access to them?  If so, what do you recommend?
