I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet, but a tried and true method in 
these parts is an empty 2-liter (or similar) plastic soda bottle.  Cut the top 
off, turn it upside down over a coax splice.  That is, put the coax with the 
connection up into the bottle.  Have the open end of the bottle downward for 
condensation drainage, etc.  Replace the bottle periodically as UV and other 
factors degrade it.  Tape it to a tower leg or other handy structure to keep it 
from blowing away in the wind, etc.  73 - Rich, KE3Q
