    Off subject I know but…

    What sort of power line was running near his antenna?
    I just can’t imagine normal domestic current, even
    multiphase doing that kind of damage to a person.
    Especially considering that the ladder should have
    taken most of it straight to ground.

      According to his web site, that was a 20 kV line.

      I can hardly figure out how such a high voltage power line could run so low. Maybe the antenna was on a very high mast.
