I just wanted to say that I use the same connector for my Ham III, and it 
IS great!

As long as we're on the subject of HAM (CDE) style rotors, let me 
expound on the greatest improvement since their invention: C.A.T.S.'s 
Quick Disconnect modification. For the paltry sum of $15 (or so) you 
get a QD weatherproof connector assembly with 8 sets of gold pins and 

It is about a half hour installation (the rotor has to come down, and 
the cable probably should, too; those pins are really small), but the 
next time you have to pull the rotor, you will want to kiss Craig. 
Well, maybe not, I've met him at Dayton.

Those terminal strips (what an apt title!) were never designed for 
outdoor use
