Here soft solder erodes on antenna connections out in the weather.
First it takes on a gray color and becomes dull, looking almost like a
cold solder joint, but it usually lasts 5 to 10 years. Soft solder
joints in the ground seem to erode even faster which is likely due to
the PH of the soil (acetic). Whether the solder joints on antennas have
to do with acid rain, or how much of that we get I don't know.
