I have used roofing cement, first I wraped joint with electrical tape 
about three layers of roof cement, it has been in the sun for over ten 
last fall I took coax down and cut the cement and tape open. the 
just like new no moisture in connectors or coax.

I  guess tar is fine but it's sure messy, smelly and other adequate 
treatments obtain a lot more efficient. The Liquid Rubber stuff is 
excellent and seems to be available now in Home Depot.  I used to order 
it from DX Engineering but it's commonly available and cheap. I've 
coated tool handles with it as well and it's very solid and reliable. 
For coax connections a no-brainer in my view and can be easily peeled 
or cut away when you need to.
