No, I guess I didn’t.

That said, our cats seem to be doing a good job discouraging any birds, and I can see the antenna mornings when I go out to the car and there’s been no debris problem I’ve been able to detect.

If it were required, I’d suspect it would be fairly easy to 3D print a pointy hat from radio-transparent plastic.
