-Slide the mast way down inside the tower (with the rotor moved out of the
way), clamp it that way using the thrust bearing setscrews, and install the
"top" antenna; then, slide it up a few feet and install the "second from
top" antenna, and so forth until you're done.
-Or, you can use a mast with climbing spikes, a good belt and a lot of guts.
-Or you can install the tower with the antennas already assembled onto it,
if you have the right raising fixtures, or a lot of help, or a crane...
The first option is the one most people use.
"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure with no loss of
enthusiasm." -Winston Churchill
