Wired different, that's for sure. 150 or 1500, not much difference when you hit bottom. I won't climb a 50 foot tower anymore. I'd upload a picture of the last one I did, but this site no longer allows me to. Not with my phone or PC.

Uh, they shut the transmitters off when there's people climbing through the antenna, right? Otherwise, the young men doing this work better be banking their sperm.

[QUOTE=MechanicalDVR;3649065]He could always drop a rope to pull up a bucket of supplies!


A 1500 foot rope?

6.55 lbs per 100 ft. X 15 = 98 lbs.

Picture of 100 ft of rope



Yeah, I'm really gonna lug 15 of these up those rungs?

Uh, your gonna need a little over 3000ft! You need a sheave and enough rope for each end to reach the ground. You will have enough wind that a guy on the ground would never catch the end of the rope. And you want the guy on the ground to do the pulling, not the guy hanging off the tower! Google Linemans Handline!

And yeah, it is a young mans game!

That's what the Air Farce guys said when I walked in front of a C-130's nose.

Hell, I did jumping jacks in front of it. They LIED!

There have been documented cases of tower guys having cancer problems in an inordinate amount.
