Jim - I use 3/16" galvanized aircraft control cable for my antenna tram line, but have never taken anything over 100 lbs up the tram. I believe this cable has a rating of around 4000 lbs. Remember, h

Warren - Using HFTA and modeling a 2-el 40-m beam over flat ground, the lobe moves from an elevation angle of about 29 deg at 69ft to 25 deg at 79ft. It's probably not worth going through a lot of ex

For the Molex connector I believe you need a .062" Molex pin extractor, but the connectors and pins are dirt cheap from Yaesu. You might just want to put a new connector on the new cable. I have no i
