We install and work on Communication Towers for TV Stations, Radio Stations, Cellular companies, etc. Well, WE......there goes that mouse in my pocket AGAIN....WE don't work on them "I" do the office work, our team members and my HUNK and oldest RUGRAT work in the field on the towers.
There was a show this last summer on NBC Dateline about our profession. I think it was titled "Tower Dogs". I didn't care to watch it, made me more nervous than I already get. In fact I've only gone on site a few times because it makes me so nervous. When I see my son repelling down the side of a tower or a building or a helicopter picking up a tower section while my HUNK is on the section of the tower that is already installed and is reaching up to grab the section flying in the air......or when people passing by stop to take out their cameras and take photos.... I'm better off in my little world here at home.... That being said, my Hunk does run a very safe crew.
This is a guyed tower......

This picture was taken by one of our crew from the top of the tower.
It's hard to beat the view....... though I think personally I'd rather just look at the photos they bring me..... I'm not too fond of heights.
