...that's the plan of action at the Skunk Works for today: I'm going to get to ascend to one of my favorite high places, take up position on an antenna balcony and...(wait for it...!)...solder wires! Yayy, hooray!
Luckily, it's a smallish MS connector, with, like, six wires total. Those things are no fun at all in the largest sizes (try 85 pins in a nice, dense grid. Bring your lunch). Unluckily, there's a certain amount of reverse-engineering involved, and we're not sure if the old connectors were pumped full of RTV for weatherproofing.
Still, I'm bringin' my camera. The view's awesome.
