Re: Ideas on securing wires inside mast?
No, a messenger cable is used strictly to move other wires from "this end" to "that end". It isn't used to secure them in place. A messenger cable needs to be at least twice as long as the wire run, so it can go back and forth, and still not be lost at either end. And available to move, without moving any existing wiring that remains in place.
You previous description was for a messenger cable:

The above definition is for a cable puller:
