[TowerTalk] Control cable for Create RC5B-3?
Tue, 7 Mar 2000 05:43:27 -0800 (PST)
I'm going to set up new tower as soon as we'll
get rid of the snow here. The 70 feet tower will
be abt. 200 feet north from the shack on top of the
150feet hill. So I need approx. 420feet of cables.
Coax is not a problem, I'll use 1/2" hardline for HF
bands. But I'm wondering how thick should the
rotator control cable be? My rotator is Create
Manual says that I need 7*0,75mm2 cable if the run is
less than 50m (164ft)and 7*2,00m2 cable if the run
is up to 80m(262ft). Does anyone have any
even longer runs? If I can't afford buying cable
which is thick enough, can I use 5*2,00mm2 + 2*5mm2
other combination? I suppose all wires don't need to
be thick ones, but which ones do?
Thanks in advance,
oh3mep, oh0mep, etc
