A good test would be to have two similar units logged, say T-bolts, 
where on is exposed to the outside solar eclipse while the other is 
nearby but in a more isolated and temperature stabilized environment.

That way a clear dependence on temperature effect could be verified (as 
being expected) while the isolated reference should only see minor or 
small change.

My current weather situation does not allow me to set it up. Besides, I 
currently only have one T-bolt. However, several days of -8 to -10 and 
90% humidity have given the trees and bushes a lovely thick crisp white 
frost-bite. Need to plan for a more snow-tolerant antenna arangement...
