So you want to install the whole 200 foot tower in one piece?   This sounds
pretty dangerous to me as Rohn 55G is not that strong.

I am going to assemble a 200 foot Rohn 55G tower on the ground, including
guys.  Then I plan to rent a crane to raise it.  I have heard this can be
done by attaching the crane at a point about 2/3 up from the base.  What
problem(s), if any, will be encountered in this process?  How difficult will
it be to align the base with the lower legs and insert the bolts?  Any
special procedure to follow for attaching the guys?

Thanks in advance for your advice.
