Dear Nate,@Vahe Tadevosyan I'd guess that means "won't hurt anything, so we do recommend using it"?
Plastics that sit in the sun a lot, tend to discolor. Some break down a lot. It's a variable.
A base sits in sun, rain, frost, hail, for several years sometimes.
Is there a cover, you'd recommend? I've seen "antenna cones" for those who have permanent, or semi permanent base set up. When I move to a t3, I was thinking of setting up the t2 as a semi permanent base. I've also heard that such cones are real expensive. 1500 to 2500. Because they have to not interfere with the signals, from any angle etc.
Is there such a thing available and recommended?
Yes, you are right! We recommend using it.
