Building an amateur/ham radio tower to support your dream antenna farm is serious business, especially if you're a member of the Paul Bunyan Amateur Radio Club in Bemidgi, Minnesota and want to erect a tower in the dead of winter.
Thanks to David Quam for showing us the planning, equipment, and safety issues involved in this project. Even if your weather is warmer than Bemidgi in the winter, please don't erect your tower alone. If you can't tap the resources of your radio club, then hire a professional engineer and rigging crew to assemble, erect, and test your tower. "Better safe than sorry."
