    Impressive presentation by K7JA. :)

    Besides the appropriate greasing of aluminum tubing joints and liberal use of stainless steel parts, I tend to coat my antennas with a clear acrylic DX Spray! :D

    Hey, that's mentioned on page 63 of 73!

    I use something called Noalox - probably something similar available at your electrical supply houses. it's some kind of gentle grease, with conductive (copper) bits in it.

    no need to get lost in the big presentation.
