I saw a video on that when they did it for the first time. They replace the insulators and I believe their suits are made of stainless steel. One guy said you get a tingle throughout your entire body while on the cables..............They get paid some $BIG BUCKS$ to do it to!!!

My company does some electrical testing work in substations and the like and we are always well aware of where the energized parts are. We stay away from them. Seeing that man hop onto a 500+ kV line goes against every instinct I have.

I have done alot of testing in a 500KV substation and just standing under it and touching your truck/ test equipment will zap the heck out of you........Not fun:(

not idiots, they have it well thought out, they are carefully modifying their potential to match the line and transfer, Its exactly what has to be done in that case, now if they were to say grab onto a metal tower and bridge the line to the tower...
