Skytower Site Visit 2015

On Monday 17th of August, the University of Auckland IEEE Student branch organised a technical site visit to the tallest man-made structure in the southern hemisphere. It was a great success, huge thanks to Warren who showed us around the telecommunication deck which is usually strictly off limits to general public.
Here are some photos from the site visit!
