I'm in the process of installing a number of Polyphaser IS-B50 arrestors on a
.120" thick copper bulkhead plate. The plate is mounted over an 8" core hole in
my foundation wall through which will pass all of my coax. Due to the N
male/female connector configuration on IS-B50 device, I believe they all must
be mounted on the outside of the plate rather than behind the plate and out of
the weather. My question is whether anyone has a fool proof, homebrew method
of waterproofing besides a thorough coating of RTV. There appears to be a
waterproofing kit available from Polyphaser, but I have no idea what the kits
includes. Also, has anyone tried swapping the connectors so the "antenna" end
is male and the "equipment" end is female?
