Darn it cobweb coax has water in it.   Darn it water in coax 1f602 

Found out by accident when I had to remove the shack end plug.

Must be getting in up at the antenna end which I did seal but must be a leak there some where.
Bottom plug, the M&P coax braid and foil all white and badly coroded.
Cut off about six inches to where it looked better but going to need to bring it down and replace.

Need some better weather to do it.

Used liquid rubber on the connector normally it's pretty good.

Still making contacts with the damaged coax but had a lot more rain
so it is not going to get any better.
