Default Transmission line climb

Off subject of Laser but I wanted to share.

This is a great clip! It was taken off YouTbe for a while, not sure why, but it is back up.

I do high steel rigging for Rock&Roll shows in the summer and end up in some pretty strange, high up areas...but Nothing at these heights!

WARNING!
Those who have a fear of heights may not want to watch!

As a HAM, I have the uptmost respect and admiration for tower monkeys. I could not ever do what they do. I get nervous 10ft off the ground unless I have a safety. (I've welded 60ft up in the air, but I had one arm locked in place around a T brace and a 10ft safety line tied to my belt. That was nerve racking as hell.)

Respect for the guys. It will be hilarious if they just need to swap the light bulb on the top

That's what they are doing replacing the light bulb

That's a hell of a climb for a light bulb.

I hear tell they make around $12-15 per hour for their work.

Its funny, at 4min's he says...."now we reach the Base of the antenna, just 60 more feet to the top"

I suppose its a job like any other, unless you are affraid of heights. The images are vertigo inducing, but safety wise this isnt the worst job in the world at all.

As far as safety is concerned it doesnt really matter if you fall down 50 or 500 meters, you'll be just as dead. Numerous construction workers fall to their death every year, but luckily antenna workers get better safety gear in the developed world

I'v seen a few of these Russian made video's of people climbing tall industrial structures. I'm not afraid of heights but I know I'm not interested in an arch of 230,000V from that wire!
