Hello there, I've worked in Telecom since 1989 and grew up in a "Bell home" with parents and relatives that worked for (and retired from!) Western Electric and Bell Telephone.  I stick to Western Electric dial phones and operate office EDison-3 on C*NET.  I have a 1A2 key system with a couple of stations and I hope to have a baby SXS someday.  Thanks to Dennis M. for having me here.

Stephen, W0TTY


Welcome Stephen, I'm John... Here in Boise... welcome to the forum!


Welcome to the forum!
You may get some warnings about how addictive this hobby may be, by my judgement, you already may have got this by genes, and might be hopeless to help out of this hobby  ;)

We are from all over the world, some of us are on C*NET some are even pretty negative to that.
C*NET: 1-999-3011 this one redirects to my Callcentric service (1777-292-2141 or 1-646-570-1796), where you again my chose to go trough my drum selector exchange (SXS) by choosing 2 get a new purring dial tone, and choose the extension wanted. My desk is no 6.

Best regards from Norway

Welcome Stephen. You have found the best forum on the net! No better people than here, especially when it come to old phones. I usually warn new members about Phoneitis but in your case it looks like you were born with it so my warning is not needed. Lots of chances here to feed the addiction!
