Designing, building, and installing an Amateur/Ham Radio tower is serious business. In this video, Chris travels to the mountains of Westcliffe, Colorado to help his dad build a ham radio repeater tower. Chris experiences high winds and a minor cable issue during the installation of the 30-foot/9.146 meter tower.
Although the process seams simple and fairly safe, don't assume all steps will go smoothly. Fortunately for Chris and his dad, the installation was solid and presented only a few minor problems. If you doubt your ability to install a tower, please consult a professional rigger or engineer.
