Loctite and CB antenna

Can you use Loctite on your CB antenna. Mine is always about a half turn lose from driving.

I am just worried about it causing reception issues.

You should be alright , just put a small drop at the very top of the threads on the antenna (holding the ant. upright).
You could also use a star washer instead.

I don't see how a small drop will hurt anything.
