PART D - POLE RECORDS
Pole records provide pole line information that is required by engineers and maintenance force. These
records consist of the following three parts:
a. The pole section records, which show the location, length, and class of each pole, and the
location, size, and lead of each guy at each pole supporting the distribution plant.
b. The pole data sheet, which provides detailed information on the individual poles shown in
the pole section records.
c. The pole line record which lists the data of trunk and long-distance lines (as distinguished
from distribution or exchange plant pole lines). The pole line record combines the information recorded
on the pole section record and the pole data sheet for the exchange plant. This can be done conveniently
with pole line records, because the long straight runs and relatively few branches of long-distance lines
are much less complicated than short runs with many branches and off-branches, which is characteristic
of the exchange plant.
