2019-06-09 Strange 3 Conductor Crossconnect Wire

from FB group Bell Telephone… Jun 11 I’ve seen this 3 wire crossconnect wire, but I can’t remember where. Long ago we had racks of datacomm with a patch panel with patch cords. We used 3 wires of four wire IW, one wire for common, one for transmit and one for receive. These were for

2019-05-22 Fiber Installing In Near Future

from FB group Orange Talk May 23 Jack What I’ve seen is the internet service providers have eliminated the lowest speeds and lowest prices of course, and now offer only higher speeds and higher prices.

from FB group Bell Telephone… May 22 Keith Hlavacs I was connecting up equipment with cat5e and cat6 cabling capable of 1000 Meg’s, and there were 48 ports on the switches on campus. The GBIC feeds on, say, 4 switches were daisychained, so a total of 192 ports per fiber optic feeder. So… I see

2019-04-01 Microwave Versus Radar Power

from FB group Bell Telephone of … Apr 2 Sam Corcione The Radars I worked on in the army were putting out peak power at 5 megawatts, but because it was listening most of the time, the average power was “only” 5 kilowatts, still equal to several microwave ovens. But it had to illuminate a

2018-11-20 Solder V. IDC Punchdown
