Thanks for the nice comments chaps the beam is fitted with Military spec RG213U and the colinear is only wired with super mini RG 8XXX total height cranked up is 50 feet to the top of the alloy scaff tube which the beam and colinear are fastened to all cables are taped together so look as one (2 coax and rotator cable) just to make it look neater and the cables formed into a eye to stop slippage at the mast
