I don’t care what kind of payment I would be receiving, there’s no way I could do that! :o

I’ve always been interested in all kinds of lighting, mainly incandescent and HID, and especially all kinds of sodium lamps (HPS/LPS). I’ll tolerate LED but I’m not a fan of it.
I’m not proud to say that my city has Devolved to LED.

I saw another of these videos where the guy discovered that the replacement strobe tube he brought up was defective !! DOH!

They really should bring 2 as a backup then. :wndr:

It's not so much heights I mind, it's falling from them I have trouble with, especially the hitting the ground at high speed bit  :poof:  :mrg:

I’ll bring a cape so I can fly! Ok on a serious note yeah I have a fear of falling.

Ive been up one climbing whole 1750 feet of it.    Talk about being sore at end of the day!  Lamp i replace was 300 volt rated code 620 watt code beacon lamp.  What i did took a modified fishing pole up there with me and a drill.  With a fishing line to bring up the 5 gallon bucket of lamps.  And as much as iIike to keep old lamps, sadly i just chuck old working lamp off the Tv tower
