It is an antisidetone phone, and the 295A was made before antisidetone induction coils were developed. It uses a #20 induction coil that has the two windings instead of three windings on the antisidetone coil. The antisidetone phone will function as a sidetone phone when connected to the 295A, which is no big deal, it will work just fine. You will hear your own voice in your own receiver a little louder than with an antisidetone subset. The 151AL will likely have 4 conductors in the deskset cord. Red, Yellow, Green, and Black. On Sidetone subsets like the 295A, you will only connect the Red, Yellow and Green. There won't be a place for you to connect the Black wire. Just put a piece of electrical tape over the spade tip of the black wire and let it hang loose. Taping it makes sure it doesn't cause static by coming in contact with other things inside the subset.
