Telephone Amplifier -  While talking to a distant sub- scriber on telephone, quite often we feel frustrated when the voice of the distant subscriber is so faint that it is barely intelligible. To overcome the problem, circuit of an inexpensive amplifier is presented here. It can be assembled and tested easily. There is no extra power source needed to power up the circuit, as it draws power from the telephone line itself. The amplifier will provide fairly good volume for the telephone conversation to be properly heard in a living room. A volume control is included to adjust the volume as desired. The circuit is built around IC LM386. ….(electronic schematic added 11/08)
Telephone Audio Interface -  Audio from a telephone line can be obtained using a transformer and capacitor to isolate the line from external equipment. A non-polarized capacitor is placed in series with the transformer line connection to prevent DC current from flowing in the transformer winding which may prevent the line from returning to the on-hook state. The capacitor should have a voltage rating above the peak ring voltage of 90 volts plus the on-hook voltage of 48 volts.... [Bill Bowden's circuit]

Telephone Autodialler -  (circuit / design added 8/03)
Telephone call meter using calculator & COB -  In this circuit, a simple calculator, in conjunction with a COB (chip-on-board) from an analogue quartz clock, is used to make a telephone call meter.

Telephone operated remote control using PIC16F84A microController -  This design controls up to 8 devices using a PIC microcontroller (PIC16F84A) connected to the phone line. The unique feature here is that unlike other telephone line based remote control, this device does not need the call to be answered at the remote end so the call will not be charged.  This device depends on number of rings given on the telephone line to activate/deactivate devices(added 10/05)
Telephone PBX -  I've been fascinated with telecommunications from an early age. When I was twelve or so I had an intercom system from which I could talk to most of the house from my corner of the kids' room. It was made out of the amplifier from a record player, and miscellaneous parts from old TV sets. When I was fourteen someone gave me a WW2 vintage shortwave receiver with a blown power supply....

The signal attenuation is needed to convert the 500 mV signal to 2.5 mV signal. The inverse-RIAA filtering is needed to make the frequency response of the system flat (same equalization that is used when music is transferred to vinyl in the studio). The picture.... [Tomi Engdahl]
Use old phones as an intercom -  Talking over the phones is easy. You put DC current through the phone and it transmits and receives audio. So two phones and a current source (about 25mA) all in series will give you a talking circuit. A suitable current source can be as simple as a 9V battery and a series resistor whose value is adjusted (with both phones offhook) till about 25mA flows. You can then bypass the battery and the resistor with a capacitor to couple the audio straight across and get a loud and clear connection.... [Markus Wandel]
Use old Phones as an Intercom -  ASCII format Now here's some logic that should work fine with the right zener and the right resistors and a couple of cheap npn's 2n2222A's or 2n3904's (06's?). If you get close to 25 volts with the new smart test boxes, a 20 volt Z may work fine. Choose R1 to limit current through Z and have enough left to turn on npn1 just enough to deprive npn2, choose R2 for that, and you will need to add a resistor R3 to protect the LED from overcurrent as needed, depending on the phone system you have!

It was designed for use on a 9-volt battery, but by changing resistor values proportionately, it could be adapted to use whatever voltage is available in your radio.... [Designed by Andrew R. Morris]
Watch-Dog for Telephones -  Most of the telephone security devices available in market are simple but quite expensive. These devices provide blinking or beeping type line-tap/misuse indications. Quite often they do not offer guaranteed protection against unauthor-ised operation. A very simple and uni- que circuit of a telephone watch-dog to safeguard subscriber telephone lines against any fraud is described here.  This little circuit keeps continuous watch over the telephone lines and sounds an alarm in case of any misuse. In addition it transmits a loud tone through the telephone lines to prevent further misuse. ….(electronic schematic added 11/08)
