In Monterey County, CA: Climbing the 180′ Mt Toro Radio Tower
Kenneth Finnegan recaps his experience climbing the 180′ radio tower at Mt Toro in Monterey County, CA. What an absolutely beautiful shot from up high:
Starting several months ago, my buddy Marcel and I decided to get serious about our amateur tower climbing and started putting out feelers for anyone in the bay area/northern California looking for volunteer tower climbers. This got us in touch with the WB6ECE repeater group and the Salinas Valley Repeater Group, which are both extensive repeater networks which inevitably have some tower work in their queues which we can get in on.
