Lowering the Ham Towers

Ham Radio

Videos of my lowering my two ham radio towers.   The wooden one is around 35-40′.  The metal tower is around 50′ tall.

Not sure any of this is something to be duplicated by others or not. The wooden tower is much too heavy. It’s not just safe, it’s 30% safe.

Took the towers down in prep for Hurricane/TS Hermine.  It shouldn’t be bad enough here to warrant taking them down, but figured it would be good practice.

I replaced the wooden tower above with the mast out of a sailboat.   It is much lighter and feels much more safe.

If anyone tries something similar, don’t blame me if something goes wrong!
