The washers are there to stop the ingress of water into the threads. Additionally, if the antenna is going to be a long-term installation, I smear some silicone grease on the threads then tape over the entire joint with self-amalgamating tape (winding from bottom to top so water runs over the overlapping turns and not into them).
