One small issue in this thread:
The large wires should connect to the brake leads in a T2X or Ham 4 unit. I  
saw a couple of mentions about large wires connected to the motor.
Yaesu rotators have two leads and it is appropriate to connect the heavy  
wires to the motor. The recommended cable for Yaesu rotators use the same  
conductor sizes for all six leads unlike the T2X/Ham 4.
There will of coarse be applications reusing an eight conductor cable to  
power a Yaesu rotator and the heavy conductors should be connected to the

Oh  man... that IS a dilemma.   Even if you follow the chart at  the

will surface.

Good luck.  You were a good friend to  help out like that.
