RE: HD-73 cabling

What is the recommended conductor size for a 50 foot run?

Wayne replies:

The manual for the Alliance HD-73 rotor says that you can use AWG #20 cable for runs up to 100 feet.  Use AWG #18 for runs up to 200 feet.  The #18 AWG cable is easier to find, and is often sold at about the same price as the #20 AWG cable.
