If you can find new cell site construction going on, check with the crews 
that do that.   Each new site (at least around here) seems to have a 
complete package drop shipped in a shipping container,  with a standard 
inventory of items to do the outside plant part of the site.  This includes 
liberal amounts of connectors, spools of cable, nuts, bolts,  conduit, coax 
clamps, hangars, etc.  It also includes LOADS  of the rolls of  Butyl Rubber 
sealers, many of which are in excess of those used in the construction of 
the site.  Those I saw were rolls, about 4" wide, about 2 ft  long, and 1/8" 
thick.... a big supply.  Extra supplies are often just tossed by the crews 
after completion of site.
Anyone looking for 120 ft 'scrap' section of 7/8" Andrews cable?
