Calling All Linesmen
I am a Electrical Power Linesman with ETSA in South Australia and would like to be able to email fellow linesmen about issue which are attacking us.
In SA we use a "T clamp" for securing service cables to other cables to get supply to houses etc but now management want to go back 30 years to use "parallel groove conectors" which are in my mind a lot more dangerous to use.
If you are a linesman please get in touch i have plenty of questions on how you do things in ohter states. We need to network together to help each other.
