Hi all 

Not sure if there is a record for the most number of towers put 
up in one day... -Or- for the most feet of tower put up in one day...

Paul K4JA put up FIVE (more!) towers today in 90+ F temps!  

FOUR 130 foot tower verticals    (Rohn 35) for 160m 4-SQ
ONE  130 foot non-rotating tower (AB-105)  for fixed South Am tower 

Total of 650 feet in one day. 

It took about 7.5 hours to do and that's with cranes too! 
Something like 6 people went through 10 gallons of water!

Paul's an iron man of station building, for sure!
