I'm interested in putting up a freestanding aluminum tower in my small 
back yard. Our lot is a narrow one; the main house is toward the front 
of the lot, and there is a detached two-story garage apartment at the 
back of the lot. Where I want the tower is the slightly sloped grassy 
yard area between the two buildings. My preference is the Universal 
12-40. Question: since there is not room to assemble the tower and 
antennas on the ground and push the whole thing up, how difficult is it 
for an experienced tower person (obviously not me!) to erect the tower 
piece by piece, and install a hex-beam on the top? I understand that 
this tower model is overkill for a hexbeam, but I want the tower to be 
able to support larger/more antennae in the future.
