Had great success with this product for cleaning up coax connectors and barrel connectors that have become noisy or intermittent due to  corrosion over the years. The noise is gone. The connectors  shine.  Even my SWR curves look different once the coax jumpers i the shack were  cleaned up.

Radio Shack sells  two tiny bottles of DeOxIT DN5, and DeOxIT Gold for $20 or so, which is  expensive for the tiny quantity you get.

Can anyone recommend a better source at better prices?

I love this stuff.  And I have   several old stereo amps with very noisy pots and switches I want to try and  restore next.

Note: there are several DeOxIT products.....not sure if one is better than the other, but the DN5 product works very well.

I bought mine from caig.com. Maybe these places have it cheaper:

hi, 

I got it at MCM, often they have free shipping.
If you order the non aerosols you have no hazmat fees for ups.

DeoxIT Pump Spray MCM Part #: 200-195

Since you only need a tiny bit for each use, if you buy the 25cc bottle with needle dispenser for about $25 from Amazon, it should last a very long time.

Use it for cleaning up my many old coax connectors and barrel connectors.  So I managed to empty  one of the two mini-aerosol bottles from Radio Shack in one day.

 Now Ive  got the GOLD bottle left. To use it next.

Thanks to all who responded.

I also have a large spray  can of Radio Shack  "electonic cleaner"  but using it does little good on electrical contacts/noisy contacts.  Smells like kerosene, so it may be more of a degreaser than anything else.

Nooooo comparison to the DE-OX-iT.
