I'm rebuilding some of my old antennas and I have a question.  What is the best 
media to use at the bean element AL telescoping joints to (a) assure they will 
later be able to be seperated and (b) assure long term RF conductivity through 
the joint.  KLM used to provide a  Penetrox like material that had what 
appeared to be some copper embedded in it.  I have heard reports that this 
caused corrosion and eventually was a disaster (purely anecdotal info).  Will 
ordinary Penetrox work, the kind used in AL wiring joints?  Does anyone have an 
opinion on this?  Thanks,  Bob   N7UA
