Local ATT carrier Southeastern Bell arrived @ 5:09 pm EST 11/20/17 at NHC. Tests were good end-to-end between Demarc and Teleco Central Office. Trouble Ticket 7N1701849 (opened by Senior Hurricane Specialist Mike Brennan) is expected to automatically close within 24 hours @ 5:42 pm on Tuesday, 11/21/17 after the 1700 UTC (noon) Medium Range Conference call. Acting HSU Branch Chief Dan Brown reports more static this morning so this ticket may need to be re-opened.
