Subject: RE: building a signal tower

Message Detail:
Here's a sample tower. Looks to be a good 100' high. I used to climb a water tower (age 21) that high on the Fourth every year to see fireworks for miles around. Now if I do(age 54), an uncontrollable clamping effect occurs in my lower extremity that lasts for hours! And it's not a good place to be if lightning approaches. Note the hovels for signal crews below. Compare the size of the horse and rider. Note the flag being used.
