OlFlex cable from Lapp (http://www.lappusa.com) would be a great choice.
I use a 22 conductor to the tower and then a 8 conductor up to the top
myself for a small rotator. They offer many different combinations you
might find useful. It's rated in millions of flexes (commonly used in
You may run into another problem...
An 8 amp load at 175 ft, you're might have to think a little larger wire
to keep from having voltage drop issues. 12ga at 175 ft with 24v has a
voltage drop of 5.5 volts. Perhaps a remote relay system at the tower
base is in order?
But I'm just guessing...
