Home Made Step Switch
« on: February 02, 2011, 10:39:36 PM »
Hi All;
When I was a Kid, I had a Candlestick with dial (I don't know what make or what happened to it). But, after hooking to my home phone line, and calling some people, and later having a phone Repair man show up to re-hook up our "500" series phone, He would not let me Re-hook it up... Anyway, I then had an old Stepper and some Relays, and I tried to make it step and hold... No Luck, But I was a kid... So I have a D1 now , and if I got another Candlestick, I would like to know how I could make it work.  and step and hold... I still don't understand how its done, and would like to know more... I like switching systems.... and phones....
THANK YOU Marty

Marty,
Join up with the switchers. They are affliated with TCI.

You can also join C*NET that is were switchers connect their switch thru the internet.
There are csome members here.

A friend of mine is building me a demo step switch.

Come out to the ATCA KS show this April and you see it in action. You can also meet Fred Haynes. Fred is a switcher and he is the one  building the demo unit for me.

Hi All;
I would love to try and get to the Show, But it would be a LONG walk, and no money for a place to stay... I struggle just to Pay Lot Rent every month.. So, a trip outside of Boulder, is out of the question, at least for the present....
THANK YOU Marty
