Besides the Coax-Wax, don't forget dB Grease. I used to sell it by the jar.
Makes the electrons slip through faster, and if you use enough of it, your
coax will actually have gain instead of loss. However, if you use too much,
the center conductor and dielectric will slip right out of the cable and
then you have to start over. It's a critical balance. -WB2WIK/6
