Soggy Windom Balun

are photos of the current Balun on our Carolina Windom antenna. This Balun hangs vertically in the air, and we discovered that the small “weep hole” was inadvertently¬†installed upside-down, allowing moisture to easily enter the inside cavity. We found lots of water inside and significant contaminant the grew inside which compromised the balun, likely for years. After a cleanup, it has been re-housed in a new PVC tube with ends. It’s now re-installed and ready for operation again!
