"Use Morse code:"

From: Ken Depue CodeElectric@worldnet.att.net


When two electricians are pulling wire through a conduit run, and they are too far apart to talk to each other (or it's too noisy), use a "Morse Code" type system to communicate. One 'tug' means "Stop," two tugs means "I'm ready. Go," three tugs means "We're here. Stop now." This obviously only works with pulling by hand, but if properly understood by both parties, it can be a very effective means of communication.
