[TowerTalk] Rotors

Because the cat 3 is only indoor rated cable and it's getting a bit 
weathered. And it has several splices in it. Eventually it will fail.

I'm curious, if it never missed a lick why are you changing the cables?

I have a m2 2800 on my 70' Rohn 45, with a 20 foot molly mast. It has a 2
ele 40 on top of the mast and a TH7 at the top of the tower.

It's never missed a lick.

I use #16 for the motor and cat 3 phone line for the reed switch. I'll be
switching to the packaged (2ea #12 or 14 and one shielded pair for the
reed switch) rotor cable this summer.
