I did work towers for 15years in the UK and a couple in Ireland...
Looking for some pictures of when I worked " live" from the helicopter ... On 400,000 volts... Made me hair curly. :) .

Back on pole lines now...

We didn't do it like you American chaps do it... We used long line techniques... I'm trying to find some pictures in the massive piles of photos I've got..
