735 DS-3 cable has a specification max length of 225'. 734 DS-3 cable
has a specification max length of 450'. When you use this long cable
length, the mux that is providing the DS-3 needs to have the pads
removed (or provisioned) for a long cable run.
Transition Networks (and others) make DS-3 fiber converters. They are
not cheap. This would be my preferred method as fiber (especially OSP)
is much better suited for outdoor exposure and temperature changes.
