[TowerTalk] Tower Fatality

Too much "pucker factor" on 25G for my taste and safety.  I will stand on
top of my tower fine, although I am not big on mast steps (prefer to lower
the mast by pulling the rotor the few times there is an unreachable problem
from the top).  But 30 feet of unguyed 25G below me - and on top of that
being 70 - 100 ft in the air?  No thanks.

They did loosen the guys first. The tower worker was about 30 feet above the
lower guys.
