I recently puchased a used Ma-550 tubular crank-up tower,which weighs 435 
lbs.I am wondering if there are any special requirements for 
installation.The tower will be attached to the apex of my roof at the 18 
foot level.With this type of installation the literature calls for a 
concrete pad 1.5'x1.5'x1.5'.Is this sufficient for this tower?How is the 
tower rasied to the vertical position ie:winch?,manpower?,crane?.Is the 
coax and rotor cable tied to the tower or are the cx-3m coax arms 
required?This my first experience with tubular towers,have always had 
Rohn type towers.Any help will greatly appreciated. Lanny Rathert N0AJZ
