Bring it down along the ladder? Just drop it all the way down then as you 
descend secure it?

Subject: [WISPA] Water tower question 

We've gotten access to two water towers that are what I call bubble
towers.  An example is here:
http://www.watertowers.com/photos_314_Arboretum_Water_Tower.html

Obviously we'll have to sector around it, etc etc, not worried about that.
Question is, for anyone who has mounted on a tower like this, how do you 
get
your cabling to the ground?  Do you go down the legs or is there some 
other
way to do it?  Only way we've come up with is to either rappel down or 
talk
the fire dept into helping with their ladder truck and bring the cables 
down
one of the legs.  Neither option is very attractive.  Is there some other
way to get the cabling down the tower?  

Thanks!

run power and fiber up the side of the ladder or conduit that their power 
goes for the light on top.

If you don't need connection below then just run power.  Put box at top 
with equipment and 5 foot aluminum 1.5 or 2 inch pipes with two u-bolts 
each or pipe clamps depending on how you have to mount them.  tape wires 
running around top to middle guard rail inside and you are good to go...   
put ups inside little hut or have box on outside with one.

Ok, assuming there is no ladder (which would be odd) then they still have 
conduit already attached for lights at top.  Run next to it.

Only other option depending on your relationship with them is to put 
flasher circuit on top and use existing power already in conduit - that way 
your gear doesn't turn on and off every few sec ;)

I forgot to add something VERY important - -  The less you have touching
anything of theirs the better off you will be in the future when it comes
time for them to sandblast and paint!! Put your sectors standing off the
handrails as far as possible using DB clamps and run your own conduit to
attach your CAT5 to!!

Re: [WISPA] Water tower question

2009-05-22 Thread Jason Hensley
On important thing I failed to mention, no ladder access from the outside
of the tower.  Ladder runs up the inside of the middle of the tower, all the
way to the top and outside the top hatch, then down a ladder to the catwalk.
If there was a ladder on one of the outside legs I wouldn't be asking the
question :-)  Got 4 other towers we're on that we don't have this issue
with.
