Bold and Pucker factor yes, no question.
No Fear..I don't think so. Notice 2 things: Left hand firmly grabbing trusted
steel mast and the fact that the angle iron bar is long enough that Jeff could
be comfortably adjusting the assembly with 2 hands while strapped onto the
boom, but isn't.
I am not suggesting that he should. Jeff looks to me like a talented and smart
tower climber to not be overcome with fear but with respect for it. Nice work
My technique is alot less "pucker factor". Put up a gin pole and take the
antenna off of the mast, swinging freely on the rope. Swing the antenna closer
to the mast and throw a temporary rope around the element at the mast to
element point. Make adjustment, swing back.
The gin pole assembly and the angle iron assembly are about a push for time.
No pucker factor required on the gin pole method. Enjoy!
