If you keep the antenna close to the hatch, you might be able to do the work while standing on the ladder. To make my life easier, I build a sub-floor with 2x6 running across the trusses to lift it off the insulation and cross braces to prevent them from falling over and plywood on top (cut into 2 foot strips to fit through the hatch). Overkill I know, but makes working up there easier.

Link to my TVFool results is in my profile Homepage URL. I suggest others do the same.
