Thanks to everyone who has already volunteered their help with this project. It sounds like we've got more than enough trucks and a ladder. Chip has climbing gear and volunteered to do the climbing anytime after Tuesday. Someone even offered us a cherry-picker!

The next issue is the weather. For safety's sake, I don't want to do this antenna removal in anything less than optimal weather - that means no rain, no strong winds (gusts > 30 mph), and definitely no lightning. Unfortunately it looks like the weather is not going to cooperate during the latter half of this week, thanks to a cutoff low that's going to park its fat butt right over the Texas panhandle and stay there for about four days. (Curses!) So I guess I'll have to ask y'all to standby until further notice...

Attached are some pictures of the site. The thing I thought was a VHF antenna was actually a regular TV antenna (my bad!) so we might want to leave that up. Just wanted to give you guys a better idea of what we're dealing with.
