I use sprinkler/irrigation wire, like from Lowes or Home Depot, for the motor and sensor wires. The dish has been there over a year (my 7.5 footer) and no recalibration has been needed...

I bought 16 Gauge cable because they didn't have 18 Gauge at the place I go to buy my stuff. Im also using phone cable for the sensor, both are working perfectly! thanks for the suggestions folks

I had the same question as OP. I'm thinking about using 7 conductor 18 gauge sprinkler wire and running two wires in parallel for each motor lead and two wires for the sensor. That still leaves me with one wire for a "drain" to ground on the motor side and leave unconnected at the receiver end.
