I have a antennas direct c4 clear stream antenna had it since 2009 done the job real good till here lately after the torrential rains we been having all my extreme range stations over 100 miles came and went with football pending had to spring into action. Wasn't to hard to figure out when I took the mast down water came out of the figure 8s. I thought whoever designed this didn't put weep holes in the bottom drilled 3/32nd holes in the bottom put mast back up with water draining from every hole still not much improvement.Took antenna back down noticed some rust on the supposedly stainless steel wing nuts sanded them and the studs put a light coat of oil on them reinstalled, reception even get Roanoke stations when pointed toward Winston Salem .

Weep holes were added two or three years ago from what I've seen, so someone figured it out.

The hardware has never been stainless.

If it's a problem, get it replaced under the lifetime warranty .

Perhaps upgrade to a DB8e or a CM-4228 or similar model. May provide even better results.
