That's within the range of "close". B-)
An auto-recloser is a box up a pole withe the three phases looping through it. An air switch is an open frame work with the three phases passing through it (or not if it's left normally open...) this has a bar running down the pole to a locked lever handle to open/close it.
The crews complain of poor mobile signals as they have to get clearance from the DNOs control rrom before they start flicking switches on/off. Only the control room has a complete picture of which switches are open or closed or which sections have faults or which sections are under maintenance.
