Can anyone comment on the following? After inheriting
a partial design (with antennas already ordered
and the tower designed by a 3rd party), I have to
mount Dayton Grainger UHF omnis, pn FM10-376-2 (same
as Rockwell Collins pn 013-1656-010) to an existing
mounting bracket, already welded to an existing,
painted steel tower. After taking the mounting bracket
to bare metal, what is the best non-oxidizing/conductive
coating that I can apply to the mounting bracket
prior to bolting the antenna base on? Without any
coating, I will have steel to aluminum. (Yes, I
I can not send the bracket out to a fab
shop for plating so this has to be done in situ.
Not that it makes any difference, but these antennas
have the old fashioned, radial ground rods on the
antenna base. And yes, I have installed a Polyphaser
lightening protection system.
Any ideas and/or
specific part numbers would be greatly appreciated.
