Antenna cable routing: what sealant to use?
MY plan is to install an antenna in the ground on a 4x4 post, about 3' from the side of my house. The coax would enter a PVC conduit 90 degree elbow at the bottom of the post, then go 3' underground thru PVC conduit, before going straight thru the concrete block foundation. I will use one of those small plastic coax bushings where it enters the block wall. My questions:
1) The top of elbow will probably be above ground. What should I use to seal around the coax cable in the conduit to keep out rain, etc. ?
2) And the same question for the other end of the underground coax before it enters the block wall. Where the coax exits the conduit underground, I assume I should seal the gap between the coax and conduit ?
Thanks for any advice.
