Check  They have cable specifically for the Orion 2800.  It's part # 306.

Dxengineering carries part DXE-CW1812OR for the 2800.  That cable has an extra ground wire.

My antenna refresh project is moving along.  The Orion 2800 was installed in 2007 and 
has functioned flawlessly.  Since I am replacing the coax it dawned on me that I 
should also replace the rotator cable.  Can’t  inspect the condition of the 
jacket etc but probably needs changing.

Suggestions on sources would be appreciated.  Orion recommends Belden 9405 but 
I definitely need cable that is very UV tolerant here in Southern California.

Thanks es 73,
