Pine-Sol cleaner. I used it when working with underground/overhead phone cable. 
Cut's right through icky-pic. If you have a Graybar Electric in your area they 
sell stuff for cleaning/removing icky-pic.

  Howdy --  Anyone have any tips or good instructions for
  installing PL-259s  and / or Times Microwave coax connectors
  on LMR 400 DB - solid core, direct burial coax cable?

  Also, what to do with the icky pick sticky goo that is on the
  braid?   My Friday Lunch Bunch guys recommended dissolving
  it with rubbing or isopropyl alcohol, but NOT with a solvent like
  naphtha or acetone as that can damage the jacket and / or center
  dielectric insulator.

  I don't mind reading if you have a web page or other source you
  can point me to.   But this is not like your regular RG-8x.

  THANKS --  Hoping to get my new antenna on the air this weekend.
