Even good solderers can have BAD connections when doing this at the top of a spar. With a good heat sink and a mini-torch it works flawlessly and is repeatable. Wish I could say the same for the shield/braid but I have not found a good way of doing this in the "weather'...
Agree. I have a piece of canvas I use to cover up small things I can wrap around myself and the masthead but it is awkward, hard to see, and a little fussy. The crimp/solder is a better way to go.
