    We're using quad antennas for the Cingular UMTS upgrades. We started out weatherproofing the connectors, but you can't get mastic between the DIN Male connectors. A PM said we can use heat shrink which is making our job a lot easier. We were also told that we could use a weatherproof enclosure that is available, but we would have to spring for the additional cost. No thanks.

    I have instructed my crews to utilize heat shrink for years especially on the antenna side with multi ports and when installed properly have had zero failure. Tape & taffy is not practical but TURF especially pushes it because it is less expensive over other options and with them in most cases cost overides quality.
