Speaking of loose screws....This was a problem even on the newer XM240 that
the screws were loose as shipped brand new.  Something to check before the
antenna goes up in the air.  

Alternatively you could use electrical tape and a silicone fusion tape and
get similar results.

I had to replace the original screws that connect the loading coil to the
tubing in each loading
coil assembly (LCA) on my Cushcraft 402CD.  I split the original heat shrink
and trimmed it back
only far enough to expose the screw connections.  I cleaned each connection
and used a new stainless
screw to replace the original.  Instead of using new heat shrink to
weatherproof the connections I
used alternating layers of a good grade of electrical tape, Scotch 33 or 88,
with "liquid tape".

Hello All

I'm trying to replace some traps and I'm wondering what kind of heat shrink
to use and a supplier?
It looks like the old heat shrink had some kind of mastic on the inside.
Any help would be appreciated.

Tnx  Lloyd  K5ZO
