Quote from: AE_Collector on April 19, 2016, 08:25:51 PMYou would think that they would put both Pennsylvania 6-5000 as well as 736-5000 on the business card. But, I guess there are what...1 in 1000 people left who would "get it" now?One given is that the CO was NOT SxS when that number was given out. Up 10 and in 10 on a connector switch leaves room for one and only one trunk to their PBX. SxS Trunk hunting or Trunk and Level hunting connectors led to numbers that ended in 1. Pennsylvania 6-5001 or more likely (to allow for more than 10 trunks in total) Pennsylvania 6-5011.Terry
