I was getting pretty great reception from my outdoor FlightAware antenna (that’s only been up a few weeks) until the first rain and brief freeze. I had neglected to wrap the connector junction it with the recommended waterproofing tape, since I misplaced it during assembly.
The weather has since cleared up for several days, but the range drop appears permanent and consistent. I removed the antenna from the connector and it appeared clean and dry a couple days after the rain.
Any advice welcome on how to diagnose and rectify this. I’ve since found the tape so I’ll get it sealed up as soon as I get it working properly again.
