Don't waste your time with trying to save $400 for the crane-spend it! it's
money well spent...I know. I put up a 40 footer last fall, had an 80' crane
come in for the lifting, and had all the tower and antenna hung in 3.5
hours-met the minimum for time and it didn't cost any more than the minimum
If you want to see my pics to see how it was done, go here:
Enjoy! The SSV is a pleasure to work on, and it really is a great tower for
ham applications, although a little expensive for most.
