cheaper, simpler, works fine here, but we only had 50" of rain last year.... 
take handful of duct seal, mold around connectors and over coax, wrap with two 
layers of cheap tape just to squeeze it in place and out of the sun.  same 
removal method, split the tape and pull apart, usually most of the duct seal 
sticks to the tape and the connector is relatively clean.  i prefer this to 
liquid tape or other stuff like that up towers since there is nothing to spill 
and no time to wait for drying.

Wrap with good quality electrical tape, coat with liquid tape. Wrap 
again, and coat again. Cheap effective and just split the taped connection with 
a utility knife when you want to take it apart.
