QuoteUsing a T1/U1 combination in a telephone that had the 101A induction coil would have been problematic, because the gain would have been uncomfortably too loud to the user. I personally do not think they would have equipped any phone that has the 101A induction coil with a handset that had the T1/U1 combination.

Would those adapters have been used only if the companion U1 receiver was also being used in the F1, as in the Continental you described?I'm leaning towards thinking that the T1 can be retrofitted into an F1 handset that still employs the HA1 receiver element, the same way F1 transmitters replaced the 395 "bullet" type in the E1 handsets, while the receiver element remained the original 557(?) designed for the E1. Is it the same principle in both cases?I suppose if one looked long enough, an example of every imaginable and workable combination of handsets and elements could be found on 5302's one came across.

I have "stickied" the topic so that it doesn't disappear.I highlighted your quote only to point out the colored 5302's. For obvious reasons they never had an F1 handset. I have one 5302 in color. It has a standard G3 handset with the U1/T1 combination connected to the 101A induction coil. It is exactly as you described. While speaking on the phone my own voice is amplified in the ear to the point of being annoying. The dated parts of this 5302 with regard to the plastic are similar which leads me to believe it came from the refurb shop as it appears now. The housing is 9/59. The handset, caps, and coiled cord are from 1960. The elements are marked 5-24-60 and 5-25-60. The set is marked 5302G on the bottom.If I had to use this phone as an every day phone it would be very difficult because of the increased volume in only my voice transmission. The voice of the person on the other end is normal.
