I will be tilting over a HG-52-SS tower fully nestled with a T-8 and CDE
rotor on it and I need to figure a rating for the tiltover cable.
Tower/rotor/antenna are approximately in the 600 pound range and the tower
will tilt over on the bottom two bolts of one side of the tower.

I'm working on a saddle support for the tower when laid over so the cable
isn't the only thing holding it, but I want overkill on the cable as I go
up and down - getting old and want to work on antennas/rotor/etc from the

Any recommendations?
