In my case, I routed the coax about 3 feet above the beam, 
with just enough length for 180 degree rotation either side
from north. I had to experiment to find the right length where 
the coax did not lay on the driven element at any azimuth.

The coax to the shack is then routed down through the middle 
of the ring, with the coax secured to the tower by your favorite
means. :-)  That method has worked here for nine years so far.
