Hello All,

I have been considering running my coax, antenna
selector control cable and rotor control cable through a 3"-4"
inch conduit. I would like to get some opinions on the best
way to handle the ends that are projecting out of the ground.
I did read a former thread that talked about two 90 deg bends
(sounds good for water/rain.) what about bugs/rodents/varmints etc...
Anyone have a good idea how to seal the ends that would still provide
passage of the cables and could be removed with a minimum of effort
whenever it comes time to replace or add to the cables?

steel wool?
(or stainless steel, or bronze, both of which won't rust)

fiberglass insulation is another possibility.
