Weather Proofing Kit :

I have used this material for some years now to seal cable joints, connectors etc exposed to the elements. It is a great material for radio amateurs as it can be used in a variety of different situations to completely seal off something, maybe a coax attached to an antenna, a nicked coax, a PL259 to SO 239 joint exposed to weather, two coax cables joined with a connector, etc.

The tape "self amalgamates" i. e. once it is wrapped in an overlapping fashion, it "self amalgamates" and fuses into one block completely sealing the portion from the elements. When you want to remove it you can cut it off with a sharp knife.

This US made material is stocked by Bright Polymers and so is now available in India. I thought I would share this information with all of you homebrewers and radio enthusiasts.
