Re: horn ring lube

Yeah.  Seems to be something of a misnomer.  The term dielectric refers to
what would normally be called an insulator.  The grease should be
conductive for this purpose.  IME, a "dielectric" grease is used for
purposes requiring a conductive grease and is, in fact, conductive.
Amazing, huh?  :-)
