    Yes, tramming is one of the best ways to get  antennas up and down. I 
have sent you a draft copy of the tramming chapter  from my way-behind-schedule 
tower book which has some illustrations. Anyone  else interested, let me know 
and I'll forward it to you. 
    I'm hoping to have the book finished by the end  of the year. It has over 
30 chapters and contains tons of useful information.
