The Y and BL are the pulsing contacts, and the other four are the two sets of dial switch contacts. If using a 425 B or E network, you can wire these the same as 7 or 9 series dials, just ignore one of the sets of dial switch contacts. There is a way to use these in a phone that uses a subset. Perhaps another member remembers how.Mike
Quote from: poplar1 on November 28, 2022, 04:49:02 PMG and BL are the pulsing contacts. G = Y on a 5H or 6A dial. BL = BK on a 5H/6A dial.To be consistent with a 5H/6A, you would strap BL and BK together. Then R on this dial = R on a 5H/6A: the existing slate-red jumper from L1 goes to R on dial.Finally, the function of BB and W are the opposite of a 5H/6A, since they make rather than break. On the 5H/6A, they open the receiver circuit (Brown-blue hookswitch to BB and white receiver to W.) To use this dial on a 302, you would connect both the brown-blue hookswitch wire and the white receiver wire to BB. Then, run a jumper wire from W on dial to R on the 101A induction coil. This will short the receiver whenever the dial is in use.If nothing else, you probably got a very good 164A number plate to use on a 5H or 6A dial!
