I am in need of some ideas on raising a tilt over base, 40 Universal tower. It is aluminum, with a rotator, 20 lb 9 ft. mast and a Force 12 C3ss antenna that is about 30 lbs. The tower can be walked up hand over hand by myself without the ant, mast, and rotator, but we tried with 4 large people and couldn't get it past about 30 degrees. No more leverage at our height. Is it possible and wise to attatch a line at the 30' level, route it above the peak of a roof and use a vehicle to pull it up? Any thoughts or suggestioins would be most helpful.
