One other thing to keep in mind is that the problem could be just antenna specific...one design that has the problem...all the other Force-12 designs may not have the problem.
Without starting the dreaded rivets/aircraft/antenna debate again, something should be said about constructing antennas with rivets. Case in point I have in the air now 46 Force 12 elements, 3-C31XR's, Mag340N, 180B. A couple of the C31's have been up, down, disassembled, reassembled at a different qth--ie: a LOT of chance for poor assembly and screwed up rivet holes. However, I have never ever had a broken tip, wallowed out holes or any other problems with these antennas or their durability. None...
