it's a 2,063 ft (628.8 m) guyed steel lattice mast

If the batteries go on the anemometer at the top of it then I'm not going up to change them 8O I assume that the tower is actually the whole antenna, so there's no need for anyone to climb it to fix things on at the top?

HEHE, i just asked the harbour master and took one of the old lamp post for free :)
just concreting in a base section and in a couple of days i should be able to hoist (i hope!) up the main section with windy thing attached to the top :)
Total cost to me 1 bag of cement (<£5) and a lot of man hours :)
