Remaining crewmembers continuously monitor curtain to prevent snagging on ground obstructions and/or
TOWER during raising.
Stop cranking TOWER WINCH when TOWER reaches a 45 degree angle.
Visually insure that MAIN RADIATOR wires are not twisted at connections to CATENARY drop wires and that
TOWER GUYS are not entangled.
Verify by movement that MAIN FEEDLINE is not entangled at TOWER TOP PLATE or under/around cross-
bar attaching TOWER LIGHT ASSEMBLY.
Do NOT raise tower to full vertical position with TOWER WINCH. Failure to stop
cranking before tower is fully vertical can result in tower pivoting beyond top dead
center and falling in the direction of ANCHOR 6 with resulting tower destruction
and/or severe injury to crewmembers.
Using the TOWER WINCH, continue cranking the TOWER toward the vertical position until it is slightly
below full vertical.
As TOWER approaches full vertical, apply tension to MIDDLE TOWER GUYS (RIGHT and LEFT SIDE) to
prevent the TOWER from being pulled past full vertical.
Attach ROPE TENSIONERS (at the ends of the RIGHT and LEFT SIDE MIDDLE TOWER GUYS) to their
respective anchors (RIGHT and LEFT ANCHOR (6)) and tension them so that the TOWER is vertical up to
Attach ROPE TENSIONERS of remaining guys (RIGHT and LEFT ROPE TOWER GUYS, RIGHT and LEFT
LOWER TOWER GUYS), to their respective ANCHOR (6) but do not apply full tension at this time.
