Hi, Well, Ed's (K4SB) accident certainly has brought out quite a few comments. N8JF wondered how many of us climb alone - my bet is probably an awful lot of us do. I certainly have done many hours of

I use golf gloves just a tad too small. 1 for each hand of course. They're made for gripping, and do a fair job of keeping your hands warm. Largest plus is you retain almost all the sensitivity in yo

Great list, Dave. I have printed it to save and review from time to time. I would like to add a suggestion that when you are pulling with a gin pole put a pulley at the bottom of the tower so you can

Good words, Dave! May I add something: 1. Be sure your are physically fit before climbing. Back in the spring, for one of my first climbs of the year I climbed the club's 80 ft tower. When I reached

These are all good common sense rules. It's bad enough to climb when you have no one to support you on the ground. However, climbing alone without a cell phone, or HT is truly asking for trouble. Som

Hello group ... I too have had to do alot of climbing alone. I try to only do it on certain projects. I never set it up for heavy work. I have also copied many of the suggestions. We here have about

Some have suggested using an HT or a cell phone when you go up the tower. Why not use a cordless phone? It's cheaper if you drop it, and you can get your local 911 number if you need to. I just got a

I NEVER get on the tower, even to go up ONE RUNG without the belt. Believe me, it will save you time in the long run because of having two hands free. (I still shudder when I remember as a Kid, I tho

Check the range of your cordless phones first. An older (49 MHz) phone probably will be out of range. The 900 MHz phone may be OK, depending on your tower height and distance from base unit. 73 Barry

What's wrong with using some of those Wal-Mart walkie talkies. Usually around 10 bucks for a set. You can even get vox activated boom mikes with one earpiece for that price. Tom -- FAQ on WWW: http:/

Good idea Chuck, when I poured the base for my tower, I set 2 large eyebolts into the concrete, about 8" out from 2 of the tower legs. This way, when ever I use my gin pole I slip a pully onto the ey

This is called a snatch-block arrangement. It changes the haul rope path from vertical to horizontal. It also allows you to be a distance from the tower so you have the haul line, load and tower work

Up here in the north (Albany,NY) I ran across some "winter" or late season golf gloves. They are made of thin, flannel-like material with leather sewn onto the palms and under the fingers to grip a c

Good idea. I use bicycle gloves, but they don't keep the warmth, but they do keep your palms off the cold hard steel. I wear my hiking boots when working on the tower. With their hard, firm soles, th
