First off, Chris It is unfortunate what happened to you.  I have had 
nothing but great customer service from Tom and Force 12.

In my many years of contesting, I have found that trying to put up big 
antennas right before contests are a mistake.  This year the antenna farm 
was up working and tested in August.  My suggestion to everyone would be to 
get your antennas up long before the contest or DX season.  You will 
eliminate a lot of mental anguish and can concentrate on other station 

There is nothing worse than having to climb towers and working hard right 
before a big effort.  Give yourself plenty of room for problems like Chris 
had.  Missing parts will happen with every manufacturer.  I know I worked 
at HRO-Denver for years.  This does not even touch on the troubles you may 
face on the tower.

Good luck to all.
