Abstract:

The report summarizes work conducted in support of the Access Facility Study Program for the Defense Communications Agency. Six different types of telephone cables were tested to obtain information on their sheilding quality and the electrical parameters affecting shielding. The shielding results were correlated with a lumped parameter model adequate for the cable lengths tested. Also, an initial investigation into standard grounding practices was conducted. The results of this study are analyzed from a system protection standpoint. Work is continuing on other cable types and in correlating the responses on long and short cables of the same type. Author
