The vibration of cables used in large radio telescope is investigated in this paper. To begin with,the differential Eq. of cable vibration is formulated. Then, the optimal control force is derived by utilizing Hamilton's principle and the active control of free vibration through axial support movement are suggested. Numerical result is given for the method.
