Though the following is not a direct reply, it has to do with how
customers handled their service needs and problems under the old Bell
System. In the 60's RCA Defense Systems along with Warwick Electronics;
(RCA parts for Sears) located in Van Nuys, Calif. They wanted a special
system and Pacific Telephone would not install it, so they had the
telephone plant placed on the North end of the plant which was in
California Water & Telephone's service area, they did what RCA wanted
and for many years as the plant expanded CWT handled all of their
service needs and did a very good job of it.
