Interesting point.  I am in the process of putting a TH-11 together and it
uses dampening cord in the small elements with plastic end caps on all
elements and the boom.  Except for drain holes in the (six) traps, there
appears to be no other attempts at providing moisture drainage.  Ditto for
the 40-2CD I am putting together.

Should I be drilling drain holes in all of the elements?  In the end caps?

73, Dick
