Brasso works great and leaves a film that helps reduce oxidation of the
silver plating. Just finished restoration of an HT-41...looks brand new.

Comet and a toothbrush.

The problem is keeping it looking fresh without affecting performance. Maybe

a very light coat of clear acrylic if the RF doesnt get them too warm.

If youre real talented maybe a fast dip in a solder pot after cleaning or 
even silver plating.
