IMO the work platform isn't worth the money - $99.00 MSR for the WP25G.
No matter where you put it, it's going to be in the way at some point. OTOH,
if you're planning on spending a lot of time at one spot on the tower, say
working on your wire antennas or something, it might be handy.

A free reprint of my 3-part series on safety equipment from my "Up The
Tower" column in CQ Contest magazine is available for an SASE. Send to TOWER
TECH, Box 572, Woodinville, WA, 98072. It covers the topic pretty thoroughly.
