They all tell you how to work them and what they do and so on and a few of them even give you a few test numbers but all this data is so old that I cant use any of it to see a loop first hand
how would I go about finding a loop now days or does anyone have one that they wouldnt mind sharing so I can take a look at it they really seem neat the idea of a confrence lol
and second do they still exist im hoping they do lol thank you all help is extreamly helpful

The most common I've found are on DMS-10s. The way those work is slightly differently; One side will be a milliwatt, and another (usually right next to it) will give you a reorder. Once you've got two people on, though, the end result is effectively the same - it'll bridge the two calls together.
Some companies have invested into softswitches. One in particular - the Taqua/Tekelec T7000 (OTZ Telephone in Alaska and Beehive Telephone in Utah are two examples of this) have a rather unique way of implementing a loop - for all we know, this is a kluge the switchmen came up with because there is no loop function. Instead of getting a milliwatt, calling one end of it will give you silence. The other person calls that same number, and you'll be bridged in. So in practice, it's more of a two party conference then an actual loop.
Hope that helps
