UCF-114 is corrugated copper hardline. RFS calls it "Ultraflex" cable, 
but being 1-1/4" diameter, it's not really very flexible. UCF is similar 
to Andrew VXL cable. It's not what you want for a crankup tower setup.

I don't know of any coax in that size or loss category that would be 
mechanically appropriate.
