Recently I saw an advert or posting on-line showing a weatherized quick connect system for rotor control cable.  Unfortunately, I do not recall the source.

Please let me know if you are aware of such a product or the source from where it can be obtained.

Thanks to all who reply.

I use a cheaper type of connector.  Trailer Hitch Electrical Connectors  Available at any auto store or Ace.  I use two, four wire units taped together, for my 8 wire control cable and have never had a problem.  Phil  KB9CRY

For my Yaesu Rotator's 6 Conductor controller cable requirements, I decided to use square 6 conductor weatherproof automotive connectors.  They are durable, inexpensive, and work extremely well.

For Hy-Gain or other rotators requiring 8 conductors, there are similar 4 conductor flat connectors; two of which would be required.

Best to all,
