Good evening.

Someone remarked about water in a balun. Had our balun manufacturer here today 
and he reminded me that I didn't mention the B-1 baluns are weatherproof. Our's 
are placed in a vacuum chamber to evacuate all air and completely fill the 
inside with filler material. After oprating at 6Y4A (6Y2A), we actually take all 
the antennas and baluns and place them in the swimming pools for an hour or two, 
maybe longer (with the blessing of the groundskeeper). This helps remove the 
salt from everything and adds little to the pools, which are close to the ocean 

Have a great day & 73,
