With the recently past talk about climbing harnesses and gear, I'm 
going to ask Santa for some new safety equipment. One way or the 
other, I want more than I have, which is a safety belt with a 
lanyard. This means I've free-climbed my tower until I get to where I 
want to be and set the positioning lanyard. I never liked it much and 
I like it even less now.

I have an HDBX-48 tower and I'm looking at the Champion Radio site. 
Prices seem reasonable. I see the full harness, but it's *only* the 
harness.  I'll certainly need a positioning lanyard, but I'll also 
need two additional lanyards with rebar hooks, and fall-arrest 
lanyard. Should the rebar hooks be on 6 ft lanyards? Anything else? 
What should I carry tools and parts in? Is there a better/additional 
place I should look at?
