Help With 20AL - Wiring

Welcome to the forum.

Which model subset are you using with the 20AL?  A subset is needed for the candlesticks.  Candlesticks do not wire directly into the phone line without a subset.

Those will run about $40 and up, but a "cheater" subset can be made with about $5.00 worth of parts from Radio shack.

Are there three wires coming from the 20AL, such as red, yellow, and green?
