We have put up big SSV sections with a heavy 20' gin pole,
and it is hairy. So much so, that the last time we elected
to use a helicopter.

With the lower section already set and levelled (we used it
as a jig for the anchor bolts) the rest of the tower was
assembled horizontally and the lift acccomplished easily
within 5 minutes.
