I failed to state that the tower had an elevator of sort inside the structure. Chief engineer rode on top and 2 in bucket. But once at 650 ft level and 1350 ft level we worked up and down lashing the heliax. I did not scale the entire tower height. We practiced good safety as far as belting off.
We used the elevator with rope through pulley at top to pull the cable to the top. Had a great ground crew too. No injuries, but 2 weekends of hard work. Was a memorable experience. I even have photo’s from the tower. Incredible view.
