It probably reduces, if not eliminates, any corrosion at the joint. This
is a big deal in the wireless industry where intermod between all the
signals being carried on one piece of coax is a concern, so you really
don't want any sort of semiconductor/junction forming. And while the
weather around here is pretty mild and non-corrosive, we do have big
temperature swings, which will pump moisture into things.
