'It's better to give than receive' so why RX when you can TX!

                            Buy one from me, NOW!

Great discounts on ALL my transmitters if purchased via HFUnderground

Also don't overlook the environment, moisture and critters will all be trying their best to get in and gum up the works. Also also the sun might try to make things difficult by heating things up that shouldn't be heated.

Wild wood rats are a real PITA. Had to use 1/4" tubular braided shield on solar panel cables

Some folks have found relief by smearing the cables and whatnot with hot sauce, the critters don't like that too much but it will have to be reapplied occasionally. Can also apply it to furniture legs that attract our four legged friends.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.
