I've always believed that solder connections provide a better electrcal connection especially for signals. I just made a 5 pin soldered connection for my windex to meter signal at the base of the mast. I used a D9 male female computer connection and sealed it very well. There's no mechanical load on it so barring the wire getting snagged in the heat of battle it should last quite a while.
