W0UN Pucker Factor Limit  ---

I know it is reasonably safe to climb higher than the following numbers
and I have done so.  But my guidelines for when the pucker factor starts
to come into play is as follows:

Rohn 25  30 ft
Rohn 45  40 ft
Rohn 55  50 ft.

Anything higher than this above the guy wires or the concrete base causes
the movement of the tower while climbing to be great enough to start to feel

Just remember-- There are OLD tower climbers and there are BOLD tower
climbers, but there are NO OLD, BOLD tower climbers.
