What is the consensus on whether it's a good idea to make the rotator loop to a yagi separate from the rest of the feedline (with barrel connector and 2 PL-259s). An unnecessary connection prone to weather, or a good hedge against failure of the rotator loop due to flexing? Two of mine have been up for 8 and 6 years respectively, but I'm replacing all my coax on the tower following a lightning hit, and if there is a better way I'd like to know it.
