You don't need to do anything to the goo that is sticking to the braid,
if you are trying to solder to it. The braid solders great with the goo
on it. Getting it off of your hands, and getting all the small pieces of
sticky braid off of your self, clothes, bench, etc. is another matter.

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.
