Quote from: ae_collector on November 29, 2010, 10:42:08 AMSpeaking of 5302's, there is an article by Russ Cowell on the 5302 in this months "Singing Wires" (Nov 15, 2010). It gives the history of the 5302 in the Bell System along with comparison pictures of the 500 and 5302. Apparently our very own Doug Pavlichek (Wallphone) knows where the pictures for the article came from. Lets just say that he doesn't need to study the pictures too close as he has the originals in his collection.Terry

Quote from: Wallphone on November 26, 2010, 06:34:46 PMPaul, is that adapter ring listed in any of the BSP's (like 501-160-100)? I have one that looks like it on a SC 1543. I always considered that phone to be in the same category as the 5302. It mounts from inside the body and it is the same size as what would fit into a 500. There is no way that it would fit in a 5302. Doug, did you get to look inside to see how yours is mounted?

I'm also hoping a straight handset cord for sale on eBay at the moment, which will be fitted if I win it. I usually like keeping things as they come, but this is the style of 5302 that I want.Having said all that I still like Doug's hybrid - very nice phone.
