IV THE ROSEVILLE TELEPHONE COMPANY MUSEUM

The Photographs on the Opposite Page

43. The upper left hand photograph shows the interior of a typical magneto wall set. Turn a crank and you generate enough power to signal the operator. Batteries provided the line current needed to talk. Note the pad beneath the batteries used to soak up the occasional acid spill.

44. The upper right hand photograph shows an Automatic Electric, Type 1 test board that was one of four in service in Roseville from 1956 to 1984. Tests of the local loop often required one person at the test board and one person in the field to actually perform the adjustments. Many coin line tests are marked at this board.

45. The lower left hand photograph shows an operator toll switchboard in use from 1959 to 1981. Local and long distance toll calls were handled at this A.E. Model Type 31C cord toll board. Several boards were in use at any one time.

46. The lower right hand photograph shows a detail of the step by step switch. The entire mechanism is nearly six feet tall by six feet wide. All photographs by Little Sheeba"

Text of Article -----------

"The notion of a museum springs from the passion for collecting, which is deeply rooted in human nature. All civilizations, from the most primitive to the most advanced, share the desire to accumulate objects that are beautiful, costly, rare, or merely curious."

47. The Roseville Telephone Company's museum in downtown Roseville, California is a marvelous collection of telephone technology. More than that, it reflects the history of an independent, progressive telephone company. Any telecom enthusiast should take the time to travel there, visit for an hour or two and engage in wondering, reflection and curiosity. What will you find? 300+ telephones. 12 switchboards. A test board and a toll board. Friendly telephone people to talk to. And best of all the pride of the museum a working step by step switch.

48. Step by step or Strowger switches were the mainstay of switching in rural and small town America for over forty years. I've described stepper operation in previous issues but I never thought I did a good job of explaining the process. Seeing one work is a great way to understand it. A large, open case contains the switch. Three phones are mounted on the left side of the case and three on the right. You can call from one phone to the other and in so doing observe all the action. Pick up a handset and go off hook. A selector jumps into action as you start dialing. Watch the wipers revolve as they search for a contact. Something's moving with every digit you dial. Hang up and everything resets itself with a satisfying clunk. Will you comprehend Strowger when you see it? Maybe not. But you should see it anyway. A stepper is like a Swiss watch with its insides revealed. You may not follow the function of each lever, sprocket and cam but you can appreciate its design and construction. And you can hear the wonderful clicking, chattering sound that steppers make, the sound that old switchmen get nostalgic about. The Roseville Telephone Company people will happily explain its operation. They'll even show you how the TraceaMatic works. It's a simple device once used to trace calls on a step switch.

49. The magneto powered cord switchboard is also interesting. Switchboards like these acted as a telephone company's central office before automation. This board dates back to 1914, the first year of RTC's operation. A small crank on the bottom right hand side allowed an operator to ring a customer's phone. Let the RTC people demonstrate how the board rings some of the phones on display. Vary the cranking at the switchboard and you vary the ring. That's important since RTC had more than ten subscribers on some party lines. What Roseville Telephone called farmers' lines. Each customer needed a distinctive ring, since it was the only way each party could tell if the call was for them. Party lines lasted until 1986 when the last open wire farmer line was retired. There's a nice exhibit that tells the story. That display includes square poles, insulators and samples of the wires. The two parties on that retired line, by the way, had their old monthly rate grandfathered in. To this day they pay less than $3.00 a month for phone service.

50. There's 4,000 square of exhibit space at the museum. The curator of the museum, Bob Parsons, says that Roseville Telephone will expand this to 8,000 feet within just a few years. Some of this new area will include outside plant equipment as well as a working open wire demonstration. They're even going to outfit an old telephone repair truck from the 1920's with a complete set of tools.

51. Thinking of going? I've had friends from Stockton and the San Francisco bay area say that it's well worth the drive. Plan to spend an hour to an hour and a half in the museum. Have lunch afterwards and help out the flood stricken economy. There are plenty of antique stores in Roseville in case someone with you gets bored. As well as one of the major train switching yards on the West Coast. Speaking of antiques, Roseville has a dealer who specializes in telephones. American Antiques and Collectables is located inside the building at 106 Judah Street. The old phones are expensive but you can handle them and look at them closely.

52. I tried to find out about telephone museums and collections in the United States but I've come up with only a small, incomplete list. Please write if you find something interesting in you area. Local antique dealers might help you. Go in to a large one and ask who collects telephones. A telephone collector will know if there are any museums or displays in the area. You might even be able to wrangle a tour of a private collection. Want to know more? Fagen's A History of Engineering and Operation in the Bell System: The Early Years 1875 1925 explains older phones and systems. It concentrates on Western Electric equipment but it is still invaluable on understanding early phones, PBX's, toll boards and switchboards.

53. Roseville is located 15 miles northeast of Sacramento, California Take Interstate 80 to the Atlantic Street off ramp. Head north into Roseville. Atlantic becomes Vernon downtown. The address of the museum is 106 Vernon. It is open on Saturdays only from 10 to 4. Look for the only building with a cell tower on top.

V. TELECOM RELATED MAGAZINES AND NEWSLETTERS

54. Welcome to the telecom related magazine list of private line. This is an update to the list that first appeared in issue Number 5. I think it is the best magazine list on the Internet. I hope to update this every two months or so. Addresses are for subscriptions and samples. I didn't include editorial addresses to save space. Quoted material comes from a magazine's masthead or from a reader's comments. Let me know if you find any mistakes in this list or if you find a magazine that I should be aware of.

55. Some of these magazines will give you free subs if you take it third class and are "qualified" to have it. My advice is to ask for a sub, fill out their form and let them make the decision. Who knows? Maybe the magazine needs more subscribers so that they can charge higher ad rates. I personally am always willing to pay for a sample copy.

56. See what happens after you write in. Then start filling out product information cards in the magazines that arrive. Be specific. The trick is to get a low cost flow of information into your mailbox. Really broke but still interested? Ask for their writers' guidelines along with a sample. Or ask for a media kit. Dummy up some letterhead at Office Depot and call yourself a consultant if you have to. But I just use my real name. That's worked so far.

A publication of the ATCA. It contains news of their organization as well as interesting articles on the history of telephony.

AT&T Technical Journal

Not as technical as the old B.S.T.J. nor understandable as the old Bell Laboratories Record., the AT&T Technical Journal does come up with some fascinating articles. No. 73 was on AT&T switches. The 5ESS-2000 and the 4ESS were both reviewed along with a lengthy discussion of how cellular and PCS calls are switched.

Circulation Group, Room 3C-417 AT&T Bell Laboratories 600 Mountain Ave. P.O. Box 636 Murray Hill, N.J. 07974-0636 (908) 582-4019

"The Official Hacker's Magazine". A nicely done magazine out of southern California. It's well worth looking for. You'll probably want to subscribe if you enjoy 2600 or my magazine.

P.O. Box 2506 Cypress, CA 90630 (310) 596-4673

Quarterly. $20 a year. $5.00 for a sample.

Cabling Business Magazine

"The Only Telecommunications Copper and Fiber Optics Cabling and Wiring Magazine for Voice, Data, and Image." These people seem a little too eager to give you a subscription.

Cabling Business Magazine P.O. Box 496177 Garland TX 754049-6177 (214) 328-1717

Call Center

A call center is a place that takes a customer's calls. It might be a catalog sales center or a cable TV company's order department. Interesting enough to check out. "Ten Ways To Foil a Hacker" was a good, non-hysterical article on fraud.

Call Center 1265 Industrial Highway Southampton, PA 18966 1-800-677-3435 MCI Mail 627-4700. Monthly. US: 12 issues for $14. Canada: $20.

Cellular Business

"This rag sucks and doesn't contain much more than fluffy press releases from the manufacturers of phones and accessories. No technical information, and they ran an article on cellular fraud that was grossly inaccurate and belonged in a Sunday newspaper supplement. I subscribed, and then refused to send them the $39 they wanted for a subscription. Just glossy garbage." Your editor, though, thinks that it really is worth a look, they seem to be getting better.

Cellular Business Intertec Publishing Corp. P.O. Box 12901 Overland Park, KS 66282-2901 (913) 341-1300

Monthly. $24 a year to qualified subscribers. Call for free sample.

Argus Circulation Center P.O. Box 41528 Nashville, TN 37204

$29 for a U.S. sub and $39 for a Canadian or Mexican subscription.

Cellular Network Perspectives

Expertly done, professional newsletter. David Crowe focuses on networks, protocols and general cellular concepts, rather than on exact technical details. It gives you the big picture without any corporate slant.

Cellular Networking Perspectives 2636 Toronto Crescent NW Calgary, AB T2N 3W1 Canada (403) 289-6609 (403) 289-6658 FAX 71574.3157@compuserve.com

Monthly. $150 a year for small business and educational customers. $250 otherwise. All back issues available He'll mail or fax you a copy of "IS-41 Explained" if you like. Computer Telephony

1-800-677-3435 1015032@mcimail.com 70600.2451@compuserve.com

Electronic Design

A real find. Features articles occasionally on telecom. Goldberg's article on PCS, for example, was a better read than a similar article that ran about the same time in the expensive IEEE Personal Communications.

Electronic Design, A Penton Publication Penton Publishing Subscription Lockbox P.O. Box 96732 Chicago, Ill 60693

Supposedly $105 a year. Write for a sample -- you should be able to wrangle a free sub from them.
