Easy - you just need the LEC's OSP charts (I'm sure there is a better term for that), go back to the previous cross-connect point and put a tone on each individual pair and trace them that way!

In all seriousness, if you are using only 3 of the 50 pairs, there is a very good chance that that 50 count is bridged to multiple locations, and any fooling with it (shorting or letting it get wet) could affect up to 50 other subscribers. Contact the phone company ASAP to get it fixed right.

Skip, I never said that. I am just saying that any of us who do inside work could figure out this outside plant issue. Of course I realize it is the telco's responsibility so they should be the one to fix it, not the OP. Lighten up...

Geeze, I KNOW I'm not a better splicer that the LEC guys. I do one about every 3 years :-)

I also can't do it for less, because I have to buy my splice cases and materials one-at-a-time.
However, in the Spring, I can get 2 or 3 small count splice kits...as long as they're gone before October, I'm good. Skip, you don't have that problem, although I still think the shelf life of the kit is less than 6 months.

About 5 years ago I did an outdoor splice at a concrete batch house. I guess it still works because we replaced thier phone system last year and have not had any service either on the cable in 5 years or the phone system after the Spirit had flown.

I don't own a 3M MS-2 splice tool, and I don't want to. A 25 or 50 pair is still spliceable in a 2x12 enclosure. The enclosure comes with all the hardware and sometimes the potting compound. I keep remembering what a wonderful time I had doing 900 pair cables...it keeps me from wanting to ever do it again.

If you have seen any telephone room that at&t has worked in, then maybe you will understand what I meant...again this is not the point of the thread. If you have an issue with my post then PM me.

Nahh, he's gone, one post wonder. We didn't tell him what he wanted to hear so he either bull-headed his way at it or asked the same question on a sparkie forum where they gave him all kinds of useful "advice". We see it all the time, these are the guys who just can't say no when they see the possibility of making a buck. Doesn't matter that they know nothing, it just isn't in their genes to pass on it and refer it to somebody who does. They'll do anything just to bill the customer.
