I use the sealing shrink tube and the removal process involves a good set of 
cable cutters. I whack it off at the shrink tube ends and install new 
connectors. The time involved to remove all the sealing goo would be far in 
excess of what it takes to put on two new connectors.

  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.
