{Collins} Re: R390A




I thought I had posted this before, but probably forgot. If you read my 
article, which was written for ER, now posted on the following web site, 
you will see the trick to using Tarn-X.

The trick is using Denatured Alcohol for the rinse process. After following 
this procedure, the switch, or in this case the BNC connector, will not 
"Get ugly again even faster" per Todd's comment. If you don't rinse with 
the alcohol, that does seem to occur.

Have fun.....
