All these first tower climb stories are great. I don't have a first
tower story, but I was working for a local ham putting up towers and
antennas when I was in high school One of the work counselors almost
found out what my actual job was (the climber), and I nearly got me and
the guy I worked for in trouble. For some reason they didn't like a 16
year old doing that kind of work. I always felt so relaxed when I was
working "up top" that I never considered it dangerous. |

When I climbed my first tower in 1993, about half way up I realized this was going to be my last day on earth. Didn't know exactly how I was going to die; falling off, tower collapses, tower falls over, etc, etc, but I knew this was it. Somehow I made it through and now I climb with no problems at all.
Needless to say, I'm still here but every now and then I think about that first time. :-) -- 73, Bill W6WRT
