If are comfortable taking the rotor apart to service it, you can buy a retrofit kit to change old Ham series rotors to the new single connector style. Hy-gain/CDE is now owned by MFJ. I didn't find them in a quick search of their website,  but they should be able to help you out with a phone call or email. 

If you don't want to take the rotor apart to do the retrofit,  Mouser and DigiKey both sell a good selection of 8 connector weatherproof connections that will work.  I feel your pain.  I used to have several of the old style Ham rotors with the screw connectors. It seems like I was always needing to repair a connection or 2.

sixty feet off the ground - just snap/unsnap. Does anyone know where I
can find such items? Thanks.
