I have a few SO-239 connectors that will be exposed to the weather. I want
to seal them from the elements.

Can anyone suggest some "goop" that will do that without messing up the RF
characteristics ? Something that will work up into the VHF Bands.

Hi Dick

I've used good old Vaseline to cover connectors and where connections are 
made to tubing.

After years of service, I can just wipe the Vaseline off and the connectors 
are just as clean as the day they went up.  Learned this trick from a friend 
who worked for the telephone company.

By the way, do you know what happened to the newlyweds who got the Vaseline 
mixed up with the putty?

All their windows fell out.  73
