An American over the pond.....
« on: June 14, 2013, 01:25:05 AM »
Hi Guys
Won this auction - interestingly it has a GPO 505 plug fitted albeit with a couple of conductors not connected- should be interesting getting it to work lol.....
Think I got a bargain as well- it looks in really nice condition :)

You sure it's not a Plug 420?  :D

The 505 is a 5-way plug and the one on the pics in that listing has 4 contacts... :)

hehe... :D

Still, it's a nice looking phone, if I had gotten it, it would have gone well with my starlite and my 740... :D

Does make me wonder how they wired up the plug though, if they did it to the N4506 diagram (the one that details Plan 4 wiring), then I'm guessing they used pins 1 and 3 on the plug, if not though, er, pass... :D
