Simple suggestion:  Ask the SteppIR people for a control-box connector with
a few feet of cable on it. (That is, do not try to solder one yourself. It
is difficult to do accurately without a proper jig.) Take this to the base
of the tower. Cut the existing cable and connect all the pigtale lines at
this point.  A little messy with the 16+ wires, but it should be safe and
accurate. Operating the control box from this point should resolve all the
questions about the 500' cable.  Of course, this assumes you can get 110v
power to the tower base.  Consider borrowing a generator, if necessary.
