Along the same note, I've been trying to get US Towers to help me with a
tower that I have & would like to refurbish. I have left six or more
messages, sent E-mail after E-mail, and gotten only one response telling me

multiple messages over a span of five weeks. I guess they don't want to
support their products, only sell new ones. I'll not consider purchasing
one of their products again.
