[TowerTalk] Installing a US Tower tilt-over crank-up

I asked earlier about crank-ups in general and "Heights" aluminum ones 
in particular.

Since then I have had extensive email correspondence (and a long 
telephone conversation) with a person who sells and installs both the 
Heights towers and the US Tower models (steel) and even owns one of each.

It seems that although everyone (even the authorized installers) agrees 
that it's difficult to get detailed installation instructions from US 
Tower, I'm coming to the view that one of theirs might be the most 
satisfactory for me -- and perhaps cheaper in the long run.

Among the things that have led me to this position is the availability 
on the 'Net of step-by-step pictures of how other people have installed 

E.g. http://bellsouthpwp.net/k/4/k4zzr/tower1.html

(although I don't like the look of his rebar cage)
