    DO NOT PUT COAX-SEAL DIRECTLY ON CONNECTORS! You'll never be able to get
it off and the connector will be semi-useless in the future.

    Put a wrap of Scotch 33 or 88 on first, and THEN put the Coax-Seal on. A
better solution is to use a commercial grade vapor wrap product - those will
peel right off.  <A
