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
If anyone has built up a housing and have pictures or
pass them along
