It's not officially recommended, but I've been using CAT-6 computer network
cable for a short run (about 75 feet) and it seems to work fine on my Yaesu
azimuth rotator.  I've had it up for over a year and it still looks ok.

You should plan to use flexible wire where it has to rotate, flex and bend
freely (as at the elevation rotor).  CAT-6 might not last too long in that

I have looked all over the place I was wondering if someone could tell me
where I can get the six conductor rotator cable for the yaesu 5500 rotator.
