    seen it before.

    i was working for a small comms company RACAL in the late 80's not long after the army days, and had to climb a 900 foot mast just north east of a place called east ilsley on the A34 north of newbury.

    it took me 2 hours and 34 minutes, my arms and legs where stinging/burning from the climb, but that was not the worst bit, i had no strength in my hands to hold the tools when i got to the Antenna that i had to move up then tighten back up.

    in the end it took me all day, i had my lunch at 765 feet in a 9mph wind that was moving the top of the mast about 1meter in that wind.

    them days have long gone. but it was fun
