Natan,  Force 12 reflector,  posted just several minutes ago,
that putting rope inside Force 12 antenna elements will void
the warranty!!  He says the antenna elements,  taper,  etc.
are designed so as to not want rope inside.  Rope inside
will change the mechanical characteristics,  perhaps leading
to breakage.  Elements are already designed to not vibrate,
etc. under wind,  nor break under heavy ice conditions.  So,
do not put rope inside Force 12 elements -- they will know if
you try to make a claim after the rope might have caused
some problem!

Just a word of caution,  hi.
