I had the radio on, as instructed. It turns out that the mast
was just very, very stuck. I trickled some penetrating oil down
the base of the mast and waited for a day. Then I gave the mast
a series of short, hard tugs. After 30 seconds or so of this, I
saw that the mast had risen about a quarter-inch. That told me I
was on the right track. Then it was just more of the same, with
the mast becomming steadily easier to move as time went on.
Eventually it did come out as it should.
Thanks for your help!
