I was thinking
That basic idea sounds good. Use two backstays, spaced apout 30 degrees apart, for sideways stability. You can cut winch tension in half by using two pulleys, one on the tower, and one on the post. The cable routing would go from an eyebolt closed eye) at the top of the post, through the tower pulley, back through the pulley on the post, mounted just below the eyebolt, and then down to the winch.
I've seen an LM-470 lowered this way. I think they used a 12' 4x4 post, just sitting on the ground. The two backstays took all the strain.
