Sorry about your plight, but... (you know the drill...)

Seriously, I would put a gin pole up as high as possible and tie the
rope to the mast as far out as you can reach.  Tie off the rope and it
will serve as the safety rope. Then saw the pipe about 1/2 way and let
off tension and pull the mast with a rope thrown over it.  (Get off the
tower first!)  

Good luck!

Chuck, KE5FI
