They carry a heat sensor usually.
Joints (splices) in power lines can get corroded. That then can cause "hot spots" which can ultimately trigger failure, or worse still, bush fires.
It is a normal way of monitoring long stretches of power lines in rural and remote areas, as Martin has indicated.
Victorians will understand the cost of not maintaining power lines properly.
Are you amongst Greg Hunt's "increasingly hysterical environmental activists"?
