Good thinking John:
Reminds me: Someone posted within last couple of years on one of
the various news groups that disused old gas mains in some UK
town/city were now being used as conduits for modern fibre optic
cables! Smart eh? Why make another hole through the ground?
Maybe in twenty years time even our electric power will be
delvered by an optic cable???? Don't stand near the end of that
cable ..... Zap!!!! :-)
Terry from Newfoundland!
PS. Years ago saw a telephone circuit that used two old pole line
power conductors. And another that used a piece of under water
telegraph cable for one conductor and one of three disused (and
damaged!) under water power conductors to get one, very noisy,
telephone circuit across to an island! Later replaced by six
gigahertz microwave radio!
