[TowerTalk] Protecting fiberglass from UV

One inexpensive way to provide a sacrificial UV layer to fiberglass and 
polymers is with a single layer of Scotch Super-33 tape. This stuff really 
holds up well to UV.
I spiral-wrapped my VHF/UHF vertical, and the center splices of my Force 12 
C3 this way. They've been up 5 years now.
That reminds me,  I'm due for an inspection climb this Spring. If I can 
reach it, I'll try removing a section of tape from the vertical and see how 
the fiberglass is doing underneath.

Anyone else tried this?
