     Ive never sealed an outside coax connector only with filled HS tubing.  
But let me offer this suggestion:  Wrap the connector with electrical tape such 
as Scotch 33 or 88, THEN apply the tubing.  At least the goo won't stick 
directly to the connector and you ought to be able to remove all the material 
with little if any trouble should you need to re-enter the connector.

I saw that Roger, K8RI, used heat shrink tubing with "sticky goo" inside 
for his coax connections.  I've got a supply of that from my days at the 
local utility.  We used it for PERMANENT underground splices.

Has anyone (Roger??) had experience removing that heat shrink from a 
connection?  I'm about to put up a tower with three antennas on it and 
was planning on using "coax-seal" but that heat shrink would be better 
but I've never had to remove it before.
