Twist the wires together over about a 1-inch length.  Solder the connection
and massage some coax-seal around the joints.

Merry christmas to everyone.

I need some advice. Im lengthining my 450 ohm ladder line, The splice will
be outside in the elements. What would be the best way to totally weather
proof the connection. I was thinking a few coats of scotchcoat and then some
GE clear silicone. Any help would be apreciated. thanks fellow hams.
