There is also a writeup in NATO FAQs about repairing the plastic toothed "cord" that powers the antenna to move up or down. After spending quite some time finding and purchasing a replacement, I decided to try that repair first before installing it.

That was more than 10 years ago...so that should give you some idea of how that went.

1987 Turbo Coupe w/T5OD, 8.8 axle, grey smoke; most options. Got it in 1991 with 41K miles: 3 turbos, 2 heater cores, 3 T5OD full rebuilds, 6 clutches, 1 head gasket, 2 Teves II ABS units, etc. later....

I've replaced the mast and that part wasn't hard but ever since I replaced it my radio won't pick up anything but the strongest signals, it's really annoying. Thankfully I use my bluetooth through my phone and the signal is fine to the current antenna.
