Tv antenna conversion to wind generator

After toying with the idea of removing the factory crank roof TV antenna I thought since it was there could I somehow use it to create an electricity wind generator somehow. Has anyone heard of, thought of or actually done this and if so what did you do? I have some ideas but I would like to hear yours.

Would have to be a pretty small wind generator, or you would have to do a lot of reinforcing to put something up that would withstand all that force. Plus, how would you put it up and down? you don't want to travel with it up.

I wouldn't travel with it up. I would be able to crank it up and down just like it does as a tv antenna. Still thinking on it. Where there's a will there's a way!
