ARRL blasted by Wireless Estimator

Indeed the ARRL should have known better…

The March issue of a well-respected magazine published by The National Association for Amateur Radio (ARRL) will most likely latch onto the literal lunacy award for depicting in a photograph the most egregious tie-off violations one could imagine….it illustrates an unacceptable tie off procedure that could easily launch students off of a tower to their deaths.

Professionals will easily identify the host of 100% fall protection safety violations that are pictured such as an improper dorsal assembly system with an unacceptable knot that has its trailing end tied off with cable ties.

ARRL should know better than to promote such an unsafe photograph, recognizing that many of their members are now silent keys after they fell from a tower.
