The TDR is also used to pinpoint splice locations on the cable. How does the TDR determine the neutral corrosion and splices on the cable?

He said, “Okay, but because of the neutral corrosion, I am having stray voltage issues affecting livestock on dairy farms. This can kill livestock. Stray voltage is also showing up sometimes on communications circuits.” How should I respond?
