Obtaining parts from Telrex was a problem even when they were in 
business. Stay away from it.

I like Phillystran a lot. It looks good, and has no RF issue at all. 
It costs about 20% more to guy a given tower than steel broken up 
with insulaters.

There is a body of thought that indicates that perhaps breaking up 
steel guys is not as necessary as we once thought. I believe Lew, 
K4VX, has written on it.
