I recall posts by K3ZJ back in the 90s about similar (probably less 
advanced) hydrophobic paint, which he had put on some Yagis.  IIRC it 
was originally developed for radomes on the DEW line.  Only real 
drawback was cost - ~$90 a gallon - but for painting antennas a gallon 
probably went a long way.  I would sure be tempted if I had invested 
gazillions in a big antenna farm, even if ice storms *with* severe wind 
are once-a-decade events.  Ask KC1XX or K3NA.
