Default Re: Peel-Conner Candlestick Phone

It turns out that the receiver is a Peel-Conner Electromagnetic Receiver Code C103. This was indeed energised from the DC across the phone lines. I have checked the receiver and it works. I propose to add a second contact to the hook switch. The phone came with a bell 1A and I propose to add an ASTIC. The works will then be as for a 150 with bellset 1. The remaining uncertainty is with the microphone, which is a beautiful piece of 1920s engineering. Rather than scrap it, I will see if it can be overhauled as it is eminently dismantleable. All in all, quite a challenge.
