Again, just because someone did it doesn't mean it was necessary. We
hear all the time about NST's dying, but how often do you hear about
NST's are manufactured to be as small and cheap as possible. No extra
effort is made to make them durable. If a sign quits, it's no big deal.
Pigs are built to last under the worst imaginable environmental and
electrical conditions. If a pig fails in power utility service,
replacement costs are high and loss of utility power could be life
threatening. They have to be tough.
