Well, if you've done it successfully before then you're basically
good to go. You didn't go into any details so I'd surmise it'll work FB.
Bigger antennas tend to be more off-balance at the boom-to-mast
bracket than smaller antennas so rig it as best you can balance-wise. It
might not be possible but you can slide your boom slings back and forth a
little to compensate. Otherwise just bring it down as best you can. By the
it hits the ground, it'll all be history anyway.
The easiest mistake to make is to have the haul rope on the wrong
side of the boom. It needs to go BEHIND the boom - on the mast side of the
boom - and you won't have any problems.
