Would you climb a tower built by some one other than a pro?
Yes, of course. I climb my 97-foot Rohn 25 frequently. I built it myself, my first tower, with the advice of other experienced hams and a lot of input from Towertalk. I *do* routinely check the guy anchors, all turnbuckles, etc. before I get on the tower. I would be more careful of towers built by other people, particularly if I was unaware of the status of preventive maintenance, and I'm aware that a lot of unsafe towers are out there..
