The cold hard truth is that if I had to wait for someone to be with me
when I climbed, I wouldn't have any towers up. I have 5 up in less than
3 years with no help except on 2 or 3 days in all that time.
Would it be better to have someone with me? Sure. But it's just
realistic at my remote location. You do what you have to do to get the
job done. And you carry a lot of life insurance.
The 2mtr handy is a good idea. I normally carry one with me too. Of
course I think being in good shape and being careful is more important.
