Can you put some 3and1 oil on the antenna to help it move better. Mine has been sticking for about 3 weeks now. I think its is freezing up on me and the oil will displace the water. My only concern is the oil causing damage.

I don't think it'll be a problem.

Take a piece of paper-towel and put a few drops of the oil on it, then run the towel up & down the antenna mast a few times. Cycle the antenna a few times to distribute the oil.

Wipe off any excess oil as any residue will tend to collect dust & grime which could make things worse.

As well, try to get some light electric motor oil variety: it's thinner than the standard 3-in-1 and won't get too thick if it gets cold.
