No Aluminum Oxidation!
I've assembled Mosley (and other) antennas using the Noalox and Penetrox for years (since 1963). They disassemble and reassemble easily, even after many years in the air! I believe the stuff is basically powdered aluminum in a petroleum jelly base. And yes, it is a pain to get it off your fingers, hands, and clothes!
DX Engineering sells a similar product that seems to substitute powdered copper for the powdered aluminum. That will also do the job.

"NOALOX" - No Aluminum Oxide
Originally designed for Al-Cu (aluminum-copper) electrical outlets, etc., that were used with aluminum electrical wire & copper-plated electrical outlets & wall switches (etc.) to prevent oxide-created issues.
