How do people tackle this problem (and it would include Yagi constructors)
of making low loss contacts at each section where an aluminium tube is
fitted into the previous section.
For Yagis it's easy. I put a small nr 6 stainless screw at each joint .
Before I insert the screw into the hole I put a dab of NoAlox into the hole
then on the screw. I cover the screw with a few wraps of tape. When you
take the tape off years later the joint is still clean.
