How to question

What is the best way/practice for attaching coax cable to a mast?
In the spring we get strong winds as the seasons start to change.

Thanks in advance,
Charles

Electrical tape such as Scotch 33 or 88+. Similar tape made overseas is available.

You may also run the coax down the middle of the mast. To do that right make a loop with the coax using tape to prevent abrasion at the ends of the mast.

Those are great in cooler weather. (Not sure about the overseas stuff)
The guy that helped me, even went over it w/ ty-wraps.
If you do, make sure they're black. (UV)
