My Rohn towers use a flat top section, I wrap in a 3X loops ~ 12-15' of a flexible coax as the rotator loop. The loops are loosely layed in on the flat top plate. One end anchored with Tye wraps to the main tower and the other end anchored to the rotating mast, with another single loop to the elevation boom.
I typically use LMR 400 ultra flex as the rotator loop with N male connectors. Below the loops are 1/2" or 7/8" hard line and above the loops is LMR-400 laced onto the H or V mast.

Hi group- I'm installing my 2MCP22 and 436CP42 U/G antennas and find that the coax is hanging up on the Rohn tower sides near my G-5500 rotator plate. How are folks keeping the coax away from the tower sides and hanging up?
Springs? Cable ties?
I have hung it up twice and stalled the AZ/EL. I don't wanna break something so thought I'd ask for expert advice and experience and not reinvent the wheel.
Thanks in advance,
