Bite the bullet and get a crane. A good crane operator will be able to
put someone up along side the mast in a bosun's chair and the antennas
can either be removed one at a time or the lift line can be attached to
the mast above its center of gravity (probably 4' +/- from the top in
your case) and the whole assemby can be lifted down as a unit.
I would suggest having the antennas brought down one at a time ... even
though it might take a little longer.
