You mean a boomtruck or crane? Sure, all the time. While a crane with enough 
boom to reach that high will be relatively expensive ($200 or more an hour), it 
may be worth it if the antenna is large.

Your two choices are: have them bring a man-basket along and you take the 
antenna up with you to install it or you be on the tower as the crane delivers 
the antenna.
