And thank goodness for them, but the ham tower that requires lights is 
rare. I wish they'd go to shields/reflectors that prevent the light from 
going up around here, but they don't even have to be shielded.  When we 
moved here 27 years ago it was quite dark. Then it seems every one was 
installing those mercury vapor lights. Of course the places with nothing 
to steal put them on all sides of a tall, white house.  People don't 
realize that shielded, directed lights are far more effective than very 
bright, unshielded lamps.

I've thought of running Christmas lights up the guys, but as I'm on the 
centerline for the local GPS-06 I think I'll pass on that one.<:-))
