Great Contact Cleaning Fluid Saves the Day

You may have read of my issues with my Barrett 910 autotune antenna in a previous post

Today I had reason to go to Jaycar and noticed a pack of two DeoxIT contact cleaners. I’d tried regular electrical contact cleaner (probably  1-1-1 Trichloroethane) before without success, so I thought I’d give this stuff a try.

It is pretty expensive for the tiny spray packs that you get, but I must say it works very well. I successfully cleaned the contacts on the tuning cable of the 910 and all is working well.

    G’day David, likewise I am a recent convert to DEoxIT. I use it for genreral audio/ electronics contact cleaning and it does work very well, although it is hideously expensive for the price you pay for it! Regards, Felix vk4fuq.
