Seems that everyone has forgotten the Aluminum replacement program at Texas 
 Towers. There is no need for all the hard work cleaning and polishing all 
those  grubby antenna elements. Replace with new ones and regain the new 
antenna signal  gains all the pride of owning a new antenna!
And, now is the perfect time for this considering the big 30% off sale  
going on right now! See _www.texastowers.com_ (  and 
clean up on the  savings. In addition to the 30% discount, any order over 
$2000 gets free  shipping as well. Only Towertalk members will get the free 
shipping so please  mention this to the sales person when you order.
If you are not quite ready, place your order now for delivery anytime this  
summer or fall. Get with your DX  buddies to pool your order for free  
Some sizes are in short supply but replacement shipments are on order. Rain 
 checks will definitely be offered for any temporary out of stock size.
Happy polishing,

Ah, but don't they look pretty glimmering in the  sun...if you don't  have 
any neighbors.

I've always found the  signals are louder with a new shiny  antenna.  It 
allows the RF  to slip off better.
