The Skyliner Ate My Roof!

Did you know that the old Skyliner TV antennas can have a "dissimilar metal" corrosion effect on the aluminum roof? We just discovered this on our roof. The pitting was so bad that the roof was like swiss cheese, and leaking!

I've got the same thing on mine. My plan was to mount a new antenna to the same spot...re-use the hole for the shaft/crank, but perhaps that's not such a good idea (?).
