Abstract : The patent relates to an isolator for enclosing a flexible waveguide at an antinode point along its length to attenuate movement of the waveguide and prevent its reaching a resonant condition. The isolator consists of a thick band of metallic wool impregnated with a low-density rubber foam contained within an elastomer jacket and supported by a snugly fitting bracket around its outer circumference which is firmly attached to a relatively immobile foundation.
