I have just received my recent order of I.C.E. coax Suppressors including the Model 349 Rotor control wire protector.
I will be installing these at the base of my tower using the ICE 318-4 mounting fixture. My tower is grounded using a linked three point (120 degree) 10 ft ground rod UFER ground system.

Since the suppressors will be exposed to the elements I wonder if some of you may share the methods you may use to waterproof the coax and rotor cable screw connections. My plan is to coat the connections with a product called liquid tape then cover them with the commercial grade of coax-seal. Would anyone have experience on how this method holds up to ultraviolet exposure that is part of living in the cloudless skies of the Las Vegas valley?
