AE 90 with rarely seen Ringer Amplification
« on: July 13, 2012, 11:13:39 PM »
I have never seen this method of increasing the ringer volume in an AE 90. It must be extremely rare item! Too bad it is just a little sunburnt though.....Color code indicates it is a "Gardenia White" phone.

Now that you mention it, those holes don't look evenly spaced enough for it to be a factory job.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

It is done well enough that with a quick glance it looks as though it could be a factory job. But afer studying it a bit more it becomes more obvious that it is a home brew job. Usually one starts to have trouble hearing the receiver rather than the bells on these phones!
