Climbing a 1700' Tower! You Couldn't Pay Me Enough!

Our friend Will, N1PXA sent along the Youtube link to this video.  Unfortunately they had to remove it from their site due to undisclosed "issues".  Fortunately however it was captured and so here it is again for you to enjoy.

Warning: This video might make you dizzy!

My skin was just crawling watching it. I would rather jump out of a perfectly good plane with a parachute... And I have in my younger days. :)

OMG,  I don't do heights and just watching that freaks me out.  I have trouble getting up on a 10 foot ladder. :-[  The people that climb towers are heroes of what they do but they are CRAZY!!!!
May God bless them and keep them safe.
Catch ya!!
