The 16-conductor cable for the MonstIR and 4-el uses #22 gauge stranded
wire. Before you do anything, you should contact SteppIR to verify that they
have tested the antennas and controller with a cable of the length you plan
to use, or greater. Simply using heavier gauge wire will not compensate for
a cable run that exceeds SteppIR's recommended limit (whatever that is!)
I know of one SteppIR fan who is waiting for the company to develop an
RS-485 controller to deal with really long cable runs.
