     Thank you everybody for all the responses to my inquiry. 
     All the responses I have received were very informative, and the 
     general consensus seems to be that there is absolutlely NOTHING wrong 
     with using Penetrox (or NoAlOx or Ox-gard), in fact everyone highly 
     recommended using one of these three antioxidants. 
     Someone wondered whether it was a sales person at Tennedyne that I 
     talked to that recommended that I do not use Penetrox - no, I spoke 
     with Chuck Brainard KA1PM (the owner of Tennadyne). When Chuck told me 
     not to use Penetrox, he related an incident in which a Tennadyne 
     antenna was not working properly, and when the Penetrox was removed, 
     it then performed fine. So now, from what I have learned about 
     Penetrox (thanks to TowerTalk), I can only conclude that either there 
     was something else (unrelated to the Penetrox) wrong with that 
     particular antenna, or maybe the guy had gooped some Penetrox around 
     an insulator causing partial conduction. Don't forget that Tennedyne 
     still recommends using SOMETHING (i.e. a mixture of WD40 and 
     graphite), but it seems to me that a Penetrox-like product is going to 
     be far superior.
     Thanks again for everyone's inputs,
     Rick WN3T
