RE: [TCML] Where to get a Pole Chicken

Hi Carey,

Now the excess is in cat5 wiring. It is generally 4 tisted pairs of various
fairly tight twists/ft to cancel crosstalk. There is plenty of that to be
had! It is the current spec for all new phone/data runs and is #24
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_5_cable . It is also in 25 pair but is
much more rare if you need many colors. 4 pairs are generally home runs to
the phone closet to be c5e or 6 complaint cat3 (older phone) is obsolete.
You can still find it but generally not past the telephone MPOE punch down
(minimum point of entry) The rest is all premise wiring and is almost always
network ready.

Hey Gary,

I hadn't thought about that, good info about transformers.
I am gettting back into E.E. projects and was wondering if you have ever 
scarfed up any
telephone color coded wire (24Ga) lately. Years ago we used to run by a new 
and the telephone linemen would give us all the scrap we could handle. Or we

would find
bundles of the stuff laying on the ground 36" to 72" sections with 50 or 60 
color coded & bundled. Haven't seen any since.
Sure would like to get some more, as in "the good old days".
