Here is a tip so next time you need to move your rig you can easily ID the cables.Take the small square plastic tag that you find on loaves of bread or buns and write on it the cable ID such as : AF OUT,EXT SPKR ,EXT ALC ,RX ANT IN ,PACKET ,CAT etc.This tab has a small notch in it that you can easily slide over the cable.Some cables look the same so this idea will help you easily put them back in a jiffy.

In addition to the above I will add that if you note the bread ties come in different colors.  Collect a few colors and you can color code the coax.

Colored insulating tape and matching colored labels on the equipment in use here. I can even see the labels without my glasses and in the semi darkness.
