[TowerTalk] Rotor connector waterproofing?

This reminded me of another option.  Lately I have been using one layer of
88 and another layer of rubber fusion tape.  This is the tape used to seal
the fiberglass joints on a SteppIR Yagi.  I purchased my tape off the
Internet.  So far it has been holding up quite nicely.

You could use Scotch 88 then Scotchcote then another layer of 88.  I did
that to "repair" (more like "replace"... they were really shot) the plastic
trap caps on an old HyGain tribander and it's still good after 10+ years.
However, for removable connection covers I would prefer 88 followed by
Scotch 23 (rubber splicing tape) and then another 88.
