Default Re: Line Tester - my ignorance is boundless!

Hello all.
Here in Australia a test phone for use by linesmen was quite often referred to as a "bag set".
Just sort of an abbreviation.
I have no idea where the term originated.
I was wondering if there is some sort of connection with the literal translation to "suitcase".
Interesting connection! Maybe?
Cheers, Robert.
