A utility pole is a column or post used to support overhead power lines and various other public utilities, such as cable, fibre optic cable, and related equipment such as transformers and street lights. It can be referred to as a transmission pole, telephone pole, telecommunication pole, power pole, hydro pole, telegraph pole, or telegraph post, depending on its application. A stobie pole is a multi-purpose pole made of two steel joists held apart by a slab of concrete in the middle, generally found in South Australia.
Electrical cable is routed overhead on utility poles as an inexpensive way to keep it insulated from the ground and out of the way of people and vehicles. Utility poles can be made of wood, metal, concrete, or composites like fiberglass. They are used for two different types of power lines; subtransmission lines which carry higher voltage power between substations, and distribution lines which distribute lower voltage power to customers.
Utility poles were first used in the mid-19th century with telegraph systems, starting with Samuel Morse who attempted to bury a line between Baltimore and Washington, D.C., but moved it aboveground when this system proved faulty. Today, underground distribution lines are increasingly used as an alternative to utility poles in residential neighborhoods, due to poles’ perceived ugliness…
In 1844, the United States Congress granted Samuel Morse $30,000 to build a 40-mile telegraph line between Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Morse began by having a lead-sheathed cable made. After laying seven miles underground, he tested it. He found so many faults with this system that he dug up his cable, stripped off its sheath, bought poles and strung his wires overhead. On February 7, 1844, Morse inserted the following advertisement in the Washington newspaper: “Sealed proposals will be received by the undersigned for furnishing 700 straight and sound chestnut posts with the bark on and of the following dimensions to wit: ‘Each post must not be less than eight inches in diameter at the butt and tapering to five or six inches at the top. Six hundred and eighty of said posts to be 24 feet in length, and 20 of them 30 feet in length.'”
One of the early Bell System lines was the Washington DC-Norfolk line which was for the most part, square sawn tapered poles of yellow pine probably treated to refusal with creosote. “Treated to refusal” means that the manufacturer forces preservatives into the wood, until it refuses to accept more, but performance is not guaranteed. Some of these were still in service after 80 years…
In Eastern Europe, Russia, and third world countries, many utility poles still carry bare communication wires mounted on insulators not only along railway lines, but also along roads and sometimes even in urban areas. Errant traffic being uncommon on railways, their poles are usually less tall. In the United States electricity is predominately carried on unshielded aluminum conductors wound around a solid steel core and affixed to rated insulators made from glass, ceramic, or poly. Telephone, CATV, and fibre optic cables are generally attached directly to the pole without insulators.
In the United Kingdom, much of the rural electricity distribution system is carried on wood poles…
Today, utility poles may hold much more than the uninsulated copper wire that they originally supported. Thicker cables holding many twisted pair, coaxial cable, or even fibre-optic, may be carried. Simple analogue repeaters or other outside plant equipment have long been mounted against poles, and often new digital equipment for multiplexing/demultiplexing or digital repeaters may now be seen. In many places, as seen in the illustration, providers of electricity, television, telephone, street light, traffic signal and other services share poles, either in joint ownership or by renting space to each other…

Cost or investment? In this video, I perform a bucket skill http://www.deepcreekconstructionschool.com/ (760)240-3045 Mr.Casey taught me in two months.
I operate a Backhoe equipped with a dipstick doing a fanning with a rock. You will need it this skill to dig trenches flat on the bottom, or a constructor will kick your butt, lol.
I mean he pays you a wage and expects a certain level of quality the job you do for him. Becuase if you don’t dig a horizontal trench for a pipe or a conduit. The crew that will install that pipe later will struggle to level it. You most likely will be a part of that team as I was.
I dug trenches with a flat bottom.Becuase I had knowledge how to do it the right way. It is important to understand such things before you do the job you signed up.
Keep your employer happy, and he should take care about your career. My personal suggestion to all of you who wants to start a career in HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATOR SCHOOL IN CA, is to keep additional costs to the constructor to a minimum.
Don’t burn fuel you don’t need to or skip greasing the equipment periodically. When you stack up such small things at the end of the month, your employer will see some savings on the balance sheet.
Part of that amount could be your bonus!
In the end, this skill requires great manual dexterity and excellent coordination.
But don’t worry I did not have skills to operate a backhoe and many others piece for equipment.
When I searched for HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATOR SCHOOLS IN CALIFORNIA I applied to Mr.Casy school and had no regret.
Yes, I spent a lot of time looking for a government accredited training school like you are doing now.
Yes, I did not have all funds to pay for tuition, so he offered me a small student loan. I am glad I took his training!
Yes, I did not speak English when I came to the US, Yes I don’t have a US BS, MS degree who cares. We all have to start somewhere to build our life.Becuase no one will do it for us.
The instructor passed that knowledge to my brain how to run it like you see in the video.
If I could why, you couldn’t?
Mr.Casey has an extraordinary passion for passing his knowledge to other students. In my case, I picked up a job after training over and started my career in a construction company and then moved to another state.
Don’t forget to ask for the UNIQUE BONUS he offers now that wasn’t available to me
Opportunity is where you find it right!
Feel free to ask me questions or if you are still not sure what California Heavy equipment operator school to choose if you want to be a Certified Heavy Equipment Operator in California and nationwide.
I will do my best to check comments and respond as soon as I could. Here is my certificate link http://screencast.com/t/XZMxiaBpvk8G
