Yes, Penetrox is one approach to take. Another is to cover the connection with self amalgamating rubber--it may be impractical to combine the two approaches, as the oily fluid may make it hard for rubber to stick.

I get a lot of rain, so I prefer to cover my antenna connection with self amalgamating rubber.
