The following coax routing arrangement has been trouble free for over 
three years at this and other installations.

Position the ant. so it is pointed North (assuming you are using 
North centered rotation), then route the coax over one of the 
horizontal braces nearest the antenna, if bringing the coax up the 
tower's inside, or tie it off, if running the coax on the outside of 
the tower,  4 to 5 feet above the TIC Ring.  Loop down to about 4 
inches above the TIC ring and back up to the top of the boom guys 
support.  Continue routing the cable down the boom guys support to 
the boom, etc.  Check to insure you have enough loop for 180 degree 
rotation in either direction.

Good luck with the installation.
