Simple ... put steps on the mast!  Or .. feed the mast up through the center
of the tower before the rotator is installed, and add aerials as it goes
thru the thrust bearing on its way up!
I've  used heavy duty angle iron, about 18" across, with muffler clamps or
the likes of to accomplish the step building .. the first time up, it's
heinie pinching time, but, lot a hot bath, you get used to it!   73, Mark ..

how does one install a antenna on the very top of a mast, i can see how you
stand on the tower and may be reach up a couple of feet. but if you are
puting up 2 antennas
how and the heack can you get to the top of a 15 foot (what ever size) mast
and bolt every thing together.

i am going to put up a rohn 25 tower and 2 antennas,
