and .. Query .. Phil, what
> experience did you have B4 you climbed that push-up mast? 

Let's keep this reflector on a professional basis and not get personal OK?
Yes back in my old days (and I'm not as old as the average ham) I too only used 
a leather climbing belt and free climbed but nowadays, after over 18 years as 
an EHS Manager conducting OSHA Fall Protection training at the plant (major 
global chemical company) and as the Plant Engineer managing the Maintenance 
Department employees doing the elevated work, I have come to learn a lot more.  
Even though many may think otherwise, OSHA regulations only get promulgated 
because there have been many accident/deaths/abuses and therefore the need to 
enforce safety.

And if I may take a little more bandwidth, I don't agree with lowering the CW 
testing requirement.  I don't think the old CW testing did much good anyway; 
I've always thought that testing should have been required in how to operate, 
how to receive, how to make a dipole, how to eliminate rfi, how to work RTTY, 
how to solder PL259s, how to QSL, etc.  

I'm done.  Phil  KB9CRY
