Just to respond, my thought was about frequent coiling and uncoiling,
packing it in and out. For a static installation such as yours it
would be ideal! And even though it is "in the field" I'd say putting
it up and leaving it for months or years is an installation, as
distinct from portable and remote mobile work.
