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.
