GM all!

Finally getting ready to raise my HG-70D tower soon.  On 
it will be an Optibeam OB12-6 and nothing else.  The rotor 
is a ProSistel.

Looking for advise on how best to do this.

With that rotor, I have to keep the tower extended to 
about 30ft due to the motor sticking out the side.  Should 

1.  Install the rotor at ground level and then raise the 
tower (raising fixture) and install the antenna with the 
tower vertical.....or

2.  Keep the tower fully retracted and install the mast 
and antenna from ground level and the raise it and install 
the rotor once vertical....or

3.  Just raise the tower and install both the rotor and 
antenna once vertical?

Tnx and hope everyone had a fine New Year.
