That one looks more accurate..

Are you sure? Ha ha ha!

I think he'd have struggled to climb those two horizontally polarised Yagi array TV aerials. They must be all of 30-60cm long.
Do the journalists just google 'antenna' and pick any photo?

'The antenna climber' - isn't that some sort of clinging garden plant?

It would be hard to get the drunk and the rescuers with a rope on the pictured antenna.

I can’t see any Yagi arrays in that picture. It begs the question however of how he got such apparently easy access to the tower. Why isn’t there a guard with a locked access hatch on to the ladder? That’s a rhetorical question of course. We know the answer TIT !!

Used to think that all radios had an antenna.

It must be a stereotype, as there are two Yagi arrays in the original story.
