Hello Mike,
 
I've been playing with antennas for over 30 years or so and I've had the
best luck with marine grade dacron.  Sure, it's a bit pricey, but that is
more than made up for by its longevity.  More recently I tried some of
the white nylon rope in a non-critical application, and it still looks OK
after three or four years exposure to the elements.

I am refurbishing one of my antenna supports. It is supported by a
large tree and is raised and lowered using blue polypropylene rope
(from B&Q).

Any advice from those more knowledgable / experienced than me?
