Wow thats some piece of kit Digger. Very nice images.
I noticed some of the pans seemed juddery. Is that a YouTube thing ? I had that problem with one of my movies.
It must be. I used a fluid head tripod and, on the master, the pans are smooth. The file was shot at 24fps and uploaded to YouTube as 720 WMV HD 4.5 mbs. It was also in the middle of the day, so I had some lighting issues, which I compensated for in post.
In respect to the antenna Kit, that is the smaller version. (Our Agency was too cheap to buy the big model with more dipoles and gain). Still, that puppy stands 51 meters high. European design and installed. Most efficient and hardest working contractors we've had on the site over the past two years of ongoing upgrade work.

Reason: additional comments
I enjoyed watching this! The music seemed particularly well-suited to the piece. From an editing standpoint, I found the long series of left-to-right pans a bit distracting.
My bad! In TV news film reporting (back in the days of 16mm) it was a practice to always do left-to-right pans, even one on top of another for different scenes. The theory being that showing an audience alternating pans (left-to-right then right-to-left) would be disorienting.
In retrospect, I agree with you that the pans of the back side of the building, then a re-pan closeup of the same area IS distracting. Thank you for pointing this out. Noted for future reference.
