It is not a secret Phil. I have been using those trailer connectors for
some time. They can be installed on a rotator, using pigtail leads, on
the tower without soldering. Just use crimp connectors and tape them for
insulation.. The critical junction between pins and wire is inside the
molded rubber. I make a small notch in the rubber with a pocket knife on
one pair to avoid ggetting them mixed up. 73, Dan, N5AR
