They absorb moisture over time and the process has changed under later 
owners. I wouldnt suggest using them over around 3500V in any enviroment.

Good old Amphenol PL-259 and SO-239, go for their Teflon versions if you 
want. New real mil spec RG-213 will handle any ham inspired voltage. Stay 
away from off brands and import crap. Ive been running up to 4KV thru the 
above for over 25 years on the 2M amp. It hi-pots over 10kv.
