Weller still sells the 250w electric solder gun works great on all  
connectors in the outdoors.

Not  easy & in cold WX tough. I have 3 of the old  wood handle irons. The  
power cords are cloth wrapped. They were my late father in laws.  
Probably 150w but can they solder a PL  259 in  a wind storm in  cold WX. 
You might  find one at a hamfest or a second hand store. I'd  never part 
with  mine. They are worth their weigh in gold!

I  have used a commom Burns-Matic with a solder tip. You have to really 
watch  it. The flame comes out two  small holes an inch or so below the  
solder tip. You turn it wrong & you can melt coax and/or your  SKIN!
