Hi everyone:

I'm about to put together a yagi for 2 meters & want to do it right.  All 
you experts advise using DeoxIT on the aluminum contact points.  I have a 
few questions:  The Caig company vends DeoxIT applicators as an aerosol 
spray, wipes, pen applicator, syringe, brush, needle, and squeeze tube, and 
packages in bottles and drums.  Which package and application method do you 
prefer?  (I don't imagine you buy the 55 gal. drum hi.)  Do you order yours 
direct from Caig or some other supplier?  If not Caig, who is your vendor?  
Do you purchase a dilution, or 100% product?  Finally, do you use caig 
PreservIT as a sealant?  See below for product choices:
