Pay Phone Log Books




 Pay Fone Log Books

 Pay fone log books are stored inside the pay fones, behind the coin system.
 I have come across 4 different types of log books, they are all basically
 the same. The older Telecom ones dont have any technical support numbers
 on the front, which the newer Telstra ones have (theyre are 3 varieties of
 this type.. two new Telstra ones, with different numbers, and one that is 
 a transision between Telecom and Telstra.. it has Telecom written with the
 rectangle and oval 'T').

 The logs are records for when and why the payfone was opened (when a payfone
 is opened, they dial a number, which i guess is a database which also logs
 the above information). All the logs are set out in the same fasion:

    Date of |  Insp (I)  |   Fault   |  Repairs / Remarks  |   Techs
     Visit  |  Fault (F) |  TR CODE  |                     |  Initials

 Date of Visit, is the full date (day/month/year). Isnp(I) Fault (F) is
 inspection of fault.. i have also seen a 'C' written here (very rare). 
 Fault TR CODE is a code such as 'NTN', 'COS', 'CAB', 'COJ' i would say this
 is where on the payfone the actuall fault occured. Repairs / Remarks are
 such comments as 'TKMBZ', 'New MPP installed', 'LCD adjust', 'TCNNN', 
 'TKBBY', 'Vandalized', '40c Upgrade', and 'Coin Funnel Blocked'. 
 Tech Initials are actually a number.. ive seen numbers from 7 to 681'.

 The inside cover of the logs are all basically the same, except for the old
 Telecom ones, they contain less details:

 I have rarely seen a pay fone log book deatils fully filled out.. most of
 them just have the cabinet no. and switch no. filled in. I have come across
 a new printing of a log book which contains a whole extra page (wow!! ;) 
 with MPP repair codes and Action Codes:
