[TowerTalk] Cleaning Aluminum Eelements

My thoughts are
1) The mating surfaces need to be clean. ie: The inside of the larger
2) Re: RF observes the skin effect and only
travels on the outside of the conductor. I think it travels on the outside
of the solid mass of the material(conductor). RF probably doesn't know if
it's on the outside or the inside of a tube.

Why would you need to do that? RF observes the skin effect and only
travels on the outside of the conductor.
