Climbing Towers to Work

The work in Chicago last week was replacing the antennas, usually about 200lbs. Climb with a rope and pulley, rig it to the tower, send one end back to a truck with a capstan and start lowering the old and raising the new antennas. For some stupid reason this doesn’t seem to pay as well. There are too many middle men in the business who want half the pay just to sit on their but and contract the work. A lot of the guys climbing and risking their necks don’t make what they should. $15.oo per hr is a Joke for this type of work but guys are willing to do it.

When I did roofing, I had trouble getting back on the ladder from the roof.
