Category Archives: The Long Lines Project

The Long Lines Project involves the conversion of two recently government provided wire line abandoned carrier telephone facilities. This involves the development and construction of the earth signal receiving system. This system will involve the study of the Alexanderson method of transmission and the advanced seismic warning project.

Transmission System Structure A52-E – Beginning of the Project

Broken poles and dangling wires, missing guy wires, etc. being cleaned up and preparations made for installing the new open wire facilities for the Alexanderson-Beverage Earth Signal Receiving Antenna. (ASW – Advanced Seismic Warning System). The repairs were done by myself (Eric Dollard) and Justin Miller (member of EPD Labs).

Part of this project consists of removing two miles of no longer used well pump control lines of open wire construction. Wire is 8 awg open wire subscriber telephone line. This wire will be used later as well as the cross arms on the overall Long Line Project.

This is the recently provided carrier right-of-way to be converted into the Earth Signal Antenna for telluric and advanced seismic warning studies.
