    New Job

    Well guys and gals,
    The new job is going very well, got out in the field today for the first time. Had to wait for our ID badges and so forth. My classmates and I (there are three of us) managed to do a 1/2 route by 2:30. Not bad considering we're slower than the 'veterans', just because we're still learning the process. Going to try for more tomorrow. Swapping out the meter module wasn't as 'intense' as I thought it would be, but it still isn't something to do 'lightly' as it were.
    Got a little windburn on my face, too. Nice day once it warmed up a bit.

    Ned,

    Good news on the job...

    Can you give us a bit more detail on exactly what you are doing?

    Greg, updating malfunctioning power meters for the local power authority. THey measure power, but they don't report it when queried by remote, so, we're taking out meters and replacing them with new units.

    Ned,

    Thanks...sounds interesting. So that's why you will be on the road...

    Do you do all residential, commercial or both?
    When you say "queried by remote", do the new units do this via wireless from a vehicle nearby, or over the lines via a signal sent to them via computer?
