Jeff, can't you (maybe with a friend also belted on the tower) handle a 16'
long aluminum mast?  I've done this by myself, strapping on very high on the
tower and hand-over-handing the pole up and then down into the
long as it's aluminum.  (I'm not strong enough to do it with thick wall

Otherwise, if two 8' sections really need to be spliced, I'd make the splice
inside the tower, not above it...
