We rigged it from the side because it was eaiser on the crane/operator.  
The crane was a 140 footer if memory serves, but only about 120 without 
the jib....and we avoided rigging the jib that way.  If the crane is 
long enough and has enough reach go for it from the top. Rohn 45 won't 
flex enough to be a concern.  Putting the top 90 feet on the base 
section was not difficult.  We used ropes and ground crew to pull it 
into line so the guy belted on the tower at ten feet could concentrate 
on alignment/putting bolts in safely.  Toughest part was getting it off 
the had to watch the base so it didn't slide about and hit 
someone until tower was at about a 30 degree angle....same thing will 
happen if you pick from the top.  73 bob de w9ge wrote:
