FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T0B05)

Q) What is the purpose of a gin pole?

A) To lift tower sections or antennas

NJ2X Notes:
A jin-pole or gin pole is a device with a pulley on the end used for the purpose of lifting from a tower.  The gin pole can be detached, moved up, and re-attached to the upper segment for the purpose of lifting the next segment.  This process is then repeated until the final section of the tower is in place.
