I'm in a location where I don't usually have access to help - or even a 
non-climbing spotter.  This has influenced a lot of my choices, including 
the use of lightweight antennas that I can handle without mechanical help 
on the tower.  I've read of other folks manhandling all sorts of big 
antennas while climbing alone, but that's not worth it for me.

One thing I always try to do is to take my cell phone with me up the 
tower.  If possible, I alert a neighbor that I'm climbing, and have both 
his number and 911 on voice dial, just in case.
