At least in taking down I've dismantled two standing towers (guyed) one
section at a time. One took a bit less than an hour including removing
the large tribander and the other took less than a half hour including
removing the tribander with was the big Wilson. I have to admit we had
some extra incentive on that one as there was a BIG THUNDERSTORM coming
in fast. We had the tower down, completely dismantled, loaded on a
pickup, and the antenna partially dismantled for transport in less than
half an hour. Never got wet.
