Video: W5JGV raises a 72-ft (22m) vertical by himself

I’ve always been a fan of good engineering. That’s not to say that I always practice it but I do enjoy and appreciate its application by others ;-)

Have a look-see at how Ralph W5JGV over in Natchitoches, Louisiana raises what looks to be a pretty hefty 72-ft vertical:

    Nice video. Below is a link to Roy’s blog that shows him raising a 200′ tower using a hand winch. Same engineering principle I believe. Please don’t try this at home.

      Thanks Jonathan – interesting and with lots of photos. I’d love to hear how that Sterba curtain plays on 80 meters…..
