This question is about the BNC connection interface itself and not how the coax is attached (assume the coax is attached in a rain-proof way).
While inspecting a male BNC connector we noticed that there is a rubberized gasket in the back that the female side presses against tighly when latched. I checked all the male connectors that I had nearby and they all had the gasket:
Looking at the female side, a touch of dielectric grease on the outer metal ring to mate with the gasket should keep water out (and indeed, the grease might not be necessary).
I've looked around and while all pictures seem to have this gasket, I have found no reference to BNC connectors being rain/waterproof by design even though it appears as though they might already be rain-proof. (There do exist rain-proof connectors that address the cable interface, but in this question I want to know if it happens that the connection itself is already rain-proof by design.)
Does anyone know for sure?
