<< I plan to put up a tower sometime in the near future. I allready have a

 to get any pricing info from TriEx. This has been going on for a month
 now !

Hi, Jerry --

      Do you have the Tri-Ex catalog? They have replacement parts in the back.
Maybe they have a separate parts catalog (I'm at work and don't have the info
here) but the cable sets are listed in one of them. 

    Are you calling them or sending email? A phone call works almost all the
time whereas email is pretty low priority.

     In 25 words or less? You might want a reprint of my 7-part series on
towers that appeared in my CQ Contest magazine column, "Up The Tower". It's
two bucks from Tower Tech, Box 572, Woodinvile, WA, 98072.

 price maybe out of hand. I have so far looked at US Tower, Trylon and
 TriEx (I don't think so).  >>

       A tower doesn't get much more expensive than a crank-up/tilt-over so if
investment is a factor, you might want to spend some time doing more homework.
OTOH, a used, re-cabled LM-470 is a pretty decent tower and reasonable cost.
