A 4-foot movement off center was pretty common, I saw 6 feet a couple times. At the top of the radio tower, it was probably 25% more. We never felt anything, but it was weird looking at the other tower and seeing the windows of the two buildings criss-crossing as they swayed.

I went to the top of the Tokyo Tower once (round section most of the way up). It swayed like crazy. So much so that I was feeling motion sickness, which I've only had once or twice before in my life. There was no other building/object tall enough around to provide reference for the movement.

You get a bit of that sensation at the 102nd floor of Empire, just below the zeppelin mooring point.





This is an old photo, taken before the combined master antennas were put up to replace the individual antennas. Ours (WPIX) is second from top:





This is a more recent photo, taken from just below the UHF master antenna, looking down at the FM array:






This is what the mast looks like today. The above photo is of the upper half of the "New FM" array.

Me, too. I don't get to do much hands-on work these days, it's mostly just design and management.

I'm hoping to have a little fun when we build out the new facility at WTC. Right now, it's all just in the planning stages. This is what the transmitter room looks like at the moment:




On the plus side, they have promised not to block the windows, so we'll have a pretty good view. On the minus side, the glass they used blocks microwave radiation, so we won't be able to put any repeater antennas inside- they all have to go on the rings.

Even in design and management that is awesome work and it's something unique and cool...

This is what I "manage and oversee". Gotta get a new tooling pad put in by the end of the month.



This is not unique and cool. This is lame and boring.

This is the customs declaration form filed by the occupants of Apollo 11 upon their entry into the United States.

I'm thankful we got a couple new guys who aren't to capable of doing any serious work. Even something as simple as wiring up a 12 lead motor with no wye delta starter stumps them.
So I get to come out from behind my computer every once in a while and get my hands dirty. It feels good getting something physically completed instead of just sending emails, generating reports, and sitting in meetings.

Today and most of this week, I've been drawing brackets and a coolant tank for our large band saws. I finally have an excuse to do some 3D drawing, but all we have is Autodesk Inventor LT 2012.

I can't draw assemblies, I can't make sheet metal flat patterns (**** this in particular), and if I make a multi-part multi-solid object (see: coolant tank with sides, top, hatch, weirs, etc.) I have to make each solid object it's own .ipt file so I can then dimension the solid "components" in the Inventor .idw ******* hate. hate so much.

I hate to break this to you, but the cats also aren't coming up with all of the funny things superimposed over their likenesses, either.
