Currently I'm running coax right on the ground between my station and
antennas. I'm looking to install some conduit so I can bury multiple
runs. When installing conduit I've seen suggestions to put a drain hole
in at the lowest point so the water can drain out.
I'm located on property with heavy clay soil in the Pacific Northwest --
it's wet most of the year. The soil is saturated. I understand the
need to protect coax from rocks and other object in the soil, does it
*really* need to be protected from water?
Conduit or no conduit, any coax buried here will be sitting in water for
all but a few months of the year. If a cable lays in conduit filled
with water for years on end, what happens?
