Topband: Antenna terminations

Well, those GE silicone sealants are designed to have pretty high
resistivity and are designed to be insulators as well as for protection.

Main thing, I expect is that the highest temperature that you reach is the
curing temperature of the silicone compound. No heat guns! :)

I wouldn't hesitate to apply it over the termination resistors on my
receiving loops, but I haven't bothered

I do the same thing with my pennant termination resistors (just cover them
with GE Silicone II sealant).
