It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

Hi guys and gals.
I am thinking of making some kind of latch that I can stand a pole up on the end of my house and have it lock into a latch mounted on the end of the peak.
Then just pull on a piece of rope or wire to release the latch and lay the antenna down.
This way there is no need to climb up and down a ladder everytime to work on yer antenna.
Or if there are heavy winds it can be lowered in a flash !!
Any ideas, suggestion !! Alot of you have brains to make something.
God Bless
