[TenTec] Omni V mic gain/ALC

The stuff seems to work quite well for me. I solved a flaky connection
problem between the EL digits and their HV power source on my Omni-V with
it, and also have used it successfully long term on my automobile's plug-in
relays. I also use it around my model trains, and on cheap edge-wipe DIP
sockets on homebrew gear (although I prefer screw-machined DIP sockets).
Perhaps it doesn't last as long on wiping surfaces as it does when there's
no motion, only static forces.

Have you been using Stabilant-22 for very long ?

Had heard that it is not good - long term.
