I remember this vid! Hey ATSers out there. Try and watch this vid without your butt puckering five times over! Seriously cool video. How these
guys can suppress just about ever human fear to accomplish their job is beyond me. These guys have serious balls.
A lot braver than me. Years ago a colleague of mine designed those kind of antennas, and he had to go up in them to make sure the installations were
good. One day he asked me to do the tests instead, and I just had to laugh at him. Even if you pay me 1 000 000 US$, I won't be capable of doing it.
I watched him testing his stuff way up there, from a distance........ Never, ever will you get me up a mast like that.
(There was a thread about this some months ago on ATS)
All I am saying is I would have to make 100k a year. With only two climbs in that time span. I have a tremendous fear of man made heights.
Mountains are no problem. When you put the ingenuity and trust in man to weigh my life or death options it falls on deaf ears.
I would need a parachute to convince me to go up that tower like that. Told you guys this video has some serious pucker factor. Heart races just
watching these guys go from one ladder to the other. At points it just seems like they are free climbing the tower with no safety rope.
These guys must use wheelbarrows to wheel their balls around in.
Very brief short periods while climbing a ladder correct. People that clean the windows on sky scrapers also face very brief periods where they could
fall. I would estimate the people that have fallen to their death are. 000001 of the total number of people.
