I needed to move my DB8e antenna slightly. It had one bay pointed at Plattsburgh, the other bay at Watertown. It should have had one bay at South Colton. Doesn't seem like much but it was 32 degrees off. It makes a difference with a remote 4KW station (WNYF). I could have lowered the tower on its hinge but since it was a minor adjustment to the lowest antenna I decided to give the tower a climb!
The climbing was easier than I thought. Tower was very steady (I am 6ft 200lbs). I used a normal fall protection harness I had for roofing. It was $79 at princess auto (it is actually only $59 next week). I also have a Millar 4-6ft lanyard from Grainger. I didn't use the lanyard, but it is good when you have a job requiring you to be in one place for a while, or if you need to lean back. I simply clipped the harness snap high on the cross members every couple of steps as I went up. In this configuration it is used to safely catch you in case of a fall, not to support you.
I'll see how the reception changes over the next week and maybe go up again next week for a final tweak.
