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.
