notes

  • Submitter Syntax first recalls the term used in Texas in the late 1990s, and reports that it's typically pronounced with a drawn out and emphasized opening, e.g. "aaaawwwwll-ready!" This may be due to Southern United States "drawl."

adjective

  • I believe the etymology is more about machine dials (and gauges), perhaps even precise micrometer dial settings.

    I heard the phrase "dialed-in" long before cellphones became common (in the late 1990s). A Viet Nam war vet neighbor of mine was using this expression in the mid-90s: "We had one guy who was a screw-up, till he got dialed-in." (This neigbor was also, later, an automotive engineer for Toyota and Ford.)

    The connotation was usually "The drilling rig is dialed-in." Or, "The pump is dialed-in. Turn it on." Meaning, all of the various gauges and dials are fully within optimal settings.

    I believe this has to do with machine dials, perhaps even micrometer dials, as in similar roots to "fully miked-out."
