Chicago Tower Tech Helmetcams Antenna Removal on Hancock Tower
Looks like a nice day
August 19, 2014
A tower tech working on Chicago’s John Hancock Center captured the
view from what appears to be a helmetcam, and posted the result on YouTube.
L1irnwkr has had nearly 300,000 views of the video showing two tower techs at
work to remove the top sections of the west antenna on the Hancock Center, some
1,455 feet in the air, according to The
Chicago Architecture Blog.
Some Chicago TV and radio stations are moving from Hancock to other locations around
the city, the blog said. Neither the tower techs nor the transmitting TV
station were identified.
