     I just got back on the ground from repairing a broken 160M shunt wire on 
my tower.  (FYI - the shunt feed showed infinite SWR in the shack and out at 
the tower I found one of the two shunt wires was broken at the top PVC 
unsulator - of course - probably from wind whipping the insulator up and down 
over the years.)  

     This was the first climb since I purchased my fingerless gloves .  I don't like them.  The glove 
material ends at the second knuckle of each finger, just where I tend to grab 
the angle steel members of my Trylon tower.  I might as well have climbed 
without 'em.  I would prefer buying a pair of full-finger gloves and cutting 
off the tips for better dexterity as some of you have done.

     Can anyone comment on the framer's gloves on the above web page?  What's 
the difference between these and what I already have?

     Thanks and Merry Christmas.
