Last year a local ham put up a stacked array on a water pipe mast.
During a winter storm, it bent about 20 degrees just above the snorkel
on the Rohn 25. He seems to think he can attach a line and bend the
mast back into line so it will drop through the top section. I don't
think this stands a chance of working and have advised him to spend
the bucks and hire a crane. What is the collective wisdom on how to
handle this situation without getting someone killed or injured.

Thanks, Roger
