Re: [installer] Bad installer
I am not surprised that the Hughesnet installation practice calls for this.
Anyway, simply suggesting an alternative. The average joe may not have a heat gun handy. Without that, and the right kind of heat shrink tubing, it can be difficult to get a good water proof seal using heat shrink tubing.
Anyway, if the local hardware store doesn't stock the tape, Amazon has a number of varieties of the tape for reasonable prices - and free 2nd day delivery if you have their Prime membership.

I used the Hughes installation spec in an Exede topic, but the technique is universal. That said, I guess you've never used heat shrink tubing. Depending upon the diameter, you can shrink it with a match, a cigarette lighter, any source of heat that lasts long enough to shrink it down to a hermetic seal. In the early days I just used one of those butane lighters for charcoal grilles. I've gone "high tech" now, and shrink it with a one pound propane bottle.
