a couple of suggestions:
1. Use a captive center pin on the N male connector.
for example, Kings Electronics Inc. N male, model # KN-59-176 for RG-214
center pin is solder type and captive, will not move axially. Wrench
clamp on the shield.
Kings cage = 91836
mil spec: M39012/01-0005
a few bucks each
2. consider adding a foam in place insulation, inside the plastic pipe
to support the coaxial cable.
drill a 1/8" hole every few feet and squirt in the aerosol foam till it
comes out of the hole.
Go for the minimally expanding insulating foam you will find in Home
Depot or Lowes.
