Stupid Question. Why not run Power up a Tower ?

Mon Nov 09, 2009 12:55 am

Silly really.

It seems that we can run cables into Buildings to carry 240VAC mains power.

How come it is a no-no for a tower ?

It'd make all the PoE nonsense go away (mainly).

And .... does it cost more to put a battery up there too ?

(i got no towers)
Don't forget to give me at least a tenner a month, every month

getting zapped while climbing up the side of a tower has a much greater chance of killing you. ( decelleration trauma comes to mind )
