True enough Jim but, using the N6RK method, I too can lower/tilt my
tower after the power goes out because the manual winches are still
useable. Also, since I'm using a Milwaukee "Super Hawg" drill
(13A/400rpm), I can use it to drill holes in ANYTHING while
AC power is still on.  I found a deal on a factory refurbished unit.
Additional cost was only one half bucket of money (about $200).
