This publication forms a "a code of good practice" to reduce to a
minimum the production of radio noise by power lines and equipment.

It provides information to follow both when
designing various fittings and components and when stringing the
conductors and installing the hardware of the line.

It also describes methods of detecting and locating defects
resulting in unusually high interference levels, and provides
prevention and correction procedures.

Lastly, Part 3 provides formulae for predicting the most probable
radio noise field of a line for various wheather conditions. In so
far as radio noise is caused by conductor corona.
