Waterproofing Of An Antenna Connector With Self Sealing Tape

Scope

Starting 2015, we will deliver a piece of self sealing tape together with each antenna. This tape is a very good protection against water in any kind of connector. However, it is somehow difficulty to use and that is why we've made this explanation.

Preparation

The tape is delivered in a piece of aluminium foil. Unpack it and throw away the aluminium foil.

Starting with a sharp knife, catch the black protection foil and remove it

Mounting

Go to the antenna connector, hold one end and then stretch the tape by about 50%.

While holding it stretched, wind it around the connector until it is fully covered. You may need to go up- and downward in order to use all material. Take special care that the gaps between the different elements are covered by the tape

Ready.

Removal

If once you want to dismantle the joint, simply use a sharp knife and cut along the tape.
