Right here, 3 days ago: fill that 90deg angle with an O-ring molded
from a small amount of Coax-Seal, and then screw the PL-259 down onto
it. This seals the circular gap where water can creep in, and creates a
much better profile for wrapping with tape.
It works, but that is the *only* good use I've ever found for Coax-Seal.
