I think I posted this video a while ago, but can't find the post, and anyway it's well worth another look.

In summer we're installing towers & antennas, fixing antennas, taking down antennas & towers, etc.  Two big hazards: gravity and electricity.

There are lots of electrical safety videos out there but I think this one is the best.  It's from Dominion Energy in Virginia.

Enjoy & learn, and please be careful if there are power lines near your antenna project.

PS: They're energizing the 7 kV demo line by backfeeding through a 240V pole transformer.  Good demonstration of why you must isolate the grid from your home wiring when running your generator during an outage.
