Default Re: Telescopic antenna lubrication: what to use?

I find that, contrary to some suggestions, a thin film of WD40 provides remarkably effective low friction lubrication lasting up to 5 years or so. I use it on curtain rails (wiped on with a soft cloth) and door hinges (sprayed on and surplus wiped off) and find it a very useful lubricant in such low stress applications.
