Paul, if you don't have too many cables, you can use a cap and drill the
cable holes in a line side by side. Then, saw the cap thru the center line
of the holes into 2 halves. Slip the 2 halves around the cables and use a
large hose clamp to hold it together when you put it over the PVC pipe. If
the saw cut worries you, put tape over it. I dont believe critters can
penetrate this.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Sealing cables at PVC exit?

I am using buried 4-inch PVC pipe to run coax and control cables from
shack to tower base. The PVC come out of the ground, turn horizontal,
and end a foot or two above the tower base. The cables will exit the
PVC, take a small drip loop, and get routed onward.

What is the best way to seal the end of the PVC around the cables? I
thought about using a PVC end cap and drilling holes, but adding a
future cable would be difficult. I am interested in hearing what
creative solutions others have found.
