A few days ago at one of their repeater sites, the Northern Colorado Amateur Radio Club had to remove all their antennas from a tower scheduled for demolition and move them to another tower. I was one of the ground crew grunts and took a few cell phone photos below that may be of interest here. The antennas were for 70cm, 2m, 1.25m, and two microwave links. Everything was removed including the hardline feeders, but not all the re-installations were completed due to rain and lightning chasing us off the 8300 foot summit of Buckhorn Mountain. The largest towers on site support antennas for several FM broadcast transmitters and other services. Prior arrangements were made for the broadcasters to reduce power during the work. The very experienced climbers wore personal RF safety monitors to ensure their exposure was within safe limits and didn't climb any higher than necessary into the fields. The large AT&T building was one of the "Long Lines" hardened microwave sites that were built in the 1950's for long distance telephone. It had a large 24/7/365 crew to run it and maintain the equipment. Special air filtering, potable water storage, food storage and prep, electric generators, decontamination showers and so on were provided to be self sufficient for a length of time in event of nuclear war.

Note the burned trees.The site was almost overrun by a forest fire a few years ago.
