I am in need of some ideas on raising a tilt over base, 40 Universal tower.  It 
is aluminum, with a rotator, 20 lb 9 ft. mast and a Force 12 C3ss antenna that 
is about 30 lbs.  The tower can be walked up hand over hand by myself without 
the ant, mast, and rotator, but we tried with 4 large people and couldn't get 
it past about 30 degrees.  No more leverage at our height.  Is it possible and 
wise to attatch a line at the 30' level, route it above the peak of a roof and 
use a vehicle to pull it up?  Any thoughts or suggestioins would be most
