Did you use a north-facing owl with it?

I'd put a little plastic or Tupperware box over it.
The 70cm version that I have has only been used for Field Day, so it's not been outside much, but it definitely shows signs of having been damp.

 Anyone out there with KLM antennas
 with the polarity switch care to comment
 on whether you have put a housing on the switch to protect
 it from the
 elements?? It looks like the relay has silicon around
 the base but it just
 grates me the wrong way to have a circuit board with a
 power connection and
 components exposed to the elements.
 Maybe it has not been an issue but I'd care to hear of
 anyone experiences.
 If anyone has built up a housing and have pictures or
 directions, please
 pass them along
