Hello All!  I have a question , I have a 60 foot Universal aluminum tower 
with a log periodic and a dual band vertical along with a rotor so I have 
around 100 lbs. at the end of my tower .  Climbing this tower for repairs is 
out of the question.  I was thinking of using a winch to pull it up or to 
lower it for repairs or adjustments.  does anyone have experience with this 
type of system ?  I would like to know What type of winch to use what type of 
cable, what do you attach the winch to?  should I keep the top of the tower 
as light as possible ? how far up do I hook the cable to the tower?  Any info 
or insight would be greatly appreciated !  thanks   John KB2HUK

Also This tower project is not complete yet I only have the first 10 ' of 
tower in the concrete ...   room for changes.    thanks
