Dubbed L-4 by A T. and T , the cable is designed to withstand everything from gophers to any disaster short of a direct nuclear attack. "We bury the cable four feet underground," staff supervisor J. A. Gendron explained. "This will give protection from just about anything short of a direct nuclear strike. We found, though, that when we hit this part of the country that we had to modify the cable to include a steel gopher protection layer. The gophers were eating us up all the way through Nebraska." The cable crews reached Wheatland earlier this month and began heading south toward Denver. Their route will take them inside the Laramie city limits. The cable is only three inches in diameter but will carry a total of 32,400 circuits. It is laid from reels weighing eight tons each with 1,700 feet of cable to each reel. 'An average day would see us cover about five miles," Gendron said. "We've had a little rough luck here, though, the country is pretty rocky." Trenches to bury the cable in are dug by a machine and are four feet deep and two feet wide. After the cable has been laid, a large mobile augur refills the trenches. "Once the land is filled in, we found that crops could be quickly planted," Gendron said. "We've had to be unusually careful here because grass is precious in this country."

Besides being self - sufficient in respect to food and water, the station has a filtration system which can draw radiation polluted air out of the atmosphere and make it fit for human use. From the junction station, the cable will turn towards Laramie and should be through here within a month. It will then proceed towards Denver and is scheduled to be in operation by June of 1969. When spliced and tested, the line will operate on an almost self watching basis., A constant gas pressure of nine pounds throughout the line will inform an electronic scanner of any break In the line.
