Hi Folks,

Planning to raise a 100ft Rohn 25 with 50lb of antenna, rotor and mast at the 
top0 (in addition to the 3/16" guy cables at 33'/65'/98'. Winch will be 
attached to the 50ft point on the tower (reinforced with 20ft 2" cromemoly 
pipe). The winch is rated at 8,000lbs lift capacity.  When we lowered the tower 
we used 3/16th" stainless cable, at the same attachment point with no issues.  
The cable was connected to a hand winch which was attached to a 4,000lb 1973 

Any estimates of the weight of the tower at 45 degrees?
