I feel your pain.  Many folks trust the construction of the connector to keep it weather title.  I never have and always put a layer of Scotch33 covering everything and out onto the Co-Ax.  Many folks will talk about condensation, but I never had anything other than a pristine connector when I open it up.  Be sure and saturate the mating parts with the grease Andrews supplies, it helps too.

> I use ½ flex hardline going from my power divider to the power relay. I do not have  loops going around the mast I simply have the Coax line of about 10ft hanging . Now the Type N connector unscrews it self after a few years & the cable falls. What unscrews it self is the nut when I turn the antenna. The pin & the shield turns of course with the coax. I was wondering if I would be better off getting an LMR 600 UF & replace this ½ hardline & make a couple of loops around the mast ?? I know it sounds simple to do or put a small vice grip around the nut & keep the way I have it setup because the coax  does not physically degrades by turning back & fourth. Any suggestions may be helpful
