WINTERIZING YOUR ANTENNAS
In freezing temperatures, rain, sleet and snow can damage your antenna. If the moisture sticks to the antenna it will begin to freeze, build up and become so heavy that the antenna can actually snap off at or near the base. So, if you operate in places where the temperature drops below 32-degrees Fahrenheit or 0-degrees Celsius, you should wipe your antennas with something that repels water.
