Kim,,,is not a guy. The perky electronic princess is the wife of Bill.
As for states winning the battle,,,as I said before, BICSI has become the standard for low voltage commercial wiring at least to the outlet, and it behooves SBE to find a way to work our needs into their standards. What should concern us greatly is that BICSI, not SBE, has an accepted standard for RF cabling as well. If you look in catalogs for coax cables, grounding kits etc, , you will find BICSI certified products. None such for SBE.
