I use Davis BuryFlex -- two runs of it at present. They are bundled 
together with the rotator cables with electrical tape at intervals and 
suspended from the uppermost standoff using Kellem grips. At the bottom 
I guide the bundle into a large trash bin with a hole in the lid as the 
tower (HDX-555) comes down.

(I really need something with lower loss for the UHF antenna -- LMR600UF?)
