Sorry to hear about the cable failure.
I have the US Tower HDX-589MDPL and had mine recabled 6 years ago by Skip,
KJ6Y. His business is tower installation and repair.
He has done a lot of work on towers like ours. He would be a good contact for
information and could recable it for you too if you wish.
Heres his contact info:
Communications Service Co.
22712 Califa St.
Woodland hills, CA 91367
