I saw a show about this on the discovery channel...
They showed a team of workers replace the antenna (which was giant, weighed hundreds of lbs) at the top of the tower (higher than you can climb), so they had to climb as high as possible, and then assemble an extension that could go above the tower. This extension also acted as a way to bring down the old antenna and bring up the new one, with the help of a stationary winch operator down on the ground. It was pretty crazy, but the workers loved their job. It was a dream job for them essentially, the adrenaline and the views were what they lived for. One other thing I found a interesting was their jargon, which had different names for "up" "down" and "stop". And if anyone ever dropped a tool the alarm would be yelled through the radios as "headache!" lol
Oh, and I forgot to add, this tower was well ABOVE 2000ft
man, that shit is insane.
quite the every day job...
