Hi Carol, 


But joint without Penetrox could be a problem. I'm sure the 
joint is now mostly non-conductive aluminum oxide. 

But if the SWR is okay I wouldn't worry about it.

Hello all, 

I am re-furbishing part of the driven element for my 155CA. the element uses two sections of tubing. The part that goes into the insulator to the boom is 84 inches of 7/8 tubing swaged. No bends. The tip is also 7/8 inch swaged and has a bend about mid section. My question concerns the tip which was bent on its way down from the tower. Removing the tip would be quite a problem since no penetrox was used when it was installed. Does having a slight bend in the tip really affect its performance?
