Winter has a way of accelerating the deterioration of cable weatherproofing.  With the return of Spring and warm weather (at least here in New Jersey), this is an excellent time to get out and inspect and maintain your coaxial cable connections and weatherproofing.  A few minutes of preventative maintenance is a low cost way to assure your cable system continues operating at peak performance.
