I suspect that this is one of those case where actually asking the
manufacturer might be useful.
It'd also be useful to paint the antenna to make it less visually

You want to turn a good antenna into a dummy load if painted with the wrong
paint the color is put in the fiber glass when it's made called pigment
coloring. Thats what protects fiberglass from UV check out the corvette it's

Does anyone know if the fiberglass rods that Steppir uses for their
antenna elements are specially treated to resist UV sunlight? I looked at
their website but could not find the answer. Maybe it was there and I
couldn't find it, maybe not.
Whether they are aren't, would it hurt to paint them with a compound
that helps fiberglass resist UV radiation?
