Scotch 88 tape works for me.  If you want to protect completely against
water vapor, coat the Scotch with liquid tape and apply another wrap after
it dries.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Rotor connector waterproofing?

I had a Ham IV rotor serviced by Norms and had them install a quick
disconnect connector in place of the terminal strip. 

The short cable from the rotor to the male connector they installed has a
black sealant around where the cable exits the connector. 

I have installed the female connector to my rotor cable and want to seal the
space where the cable exits the connector. What type of sealant is best to
use here? The connector is an Amps 9-pin of which
8 are used. The female end is labelled 206708-1.

What have you found to be the best way to waterproof the mated connectors on
the tower?
