Biographical entry Harding, J. J.
J. J. Harding played a leading role in the development of a low cost telecommunications bearer to be used on minor rural routes. It consisted of a cable in the form of a screened quad (two pairs) with polythene insulated 40 Ib. copper conductors, with an outer nylon sheath, enabling the cable to be directly buried in the ground.
