I don't know who wrote the second statement below (if you have to ask--) but it is pretty stupid. I think this attitude usually indicates either a lack of understanding, or an inability to communicate. I KNOW that "not pre-tinning the braid " does NOT, of itself, cause TVI and that pre-tinning does not prevent it.. I also know that anyone with this attitude will not get close to my rigs.
I invite anyone to try to convince me otherwise. I am asking.
and- yes, I have made a LOT of good Coax to PL 259 joints in the 52 years since I was first licensed.

::How does not tinning braid cause TVI?  Or how does tinning braid prevent

If you have to ask, you will never know.  Just don't ask me to de TVI your
