July 10th - Slowly, but surely, the temporary mast at Sutton Coldfield is being dismantled. I explained a month ago how a crane was fixed to the upper stages, and the structure was dropped carefully, piece by piece.
Today I noticed the DAB antenna were in the process of being stripped. These are the spiky structures clustered around the main mast in one spot, for about a 6th of the total height. If you look carefully at the bottom picture, you can see where cables, once connected to the elements are now hanging free.
It was a dull, overcast day, and I was hoping to catch a team at work up there, but have still yet to see one.
This is remarkable, painstaking work by very, very uniquely skilled people.
