Recording circuit of phone conversations using PC
This circuit is used to record telephone conversations on your landline telephone. All you will need is this small circuit and subscription of your PC. There are few times when we forget what we said or told us. So we need recording. Sometime, not many years ago, recording of this kind of conversation was done with a small tape recorder. The...
Speech activity detector for telephone lines
The circuit can be used in telephone lines for speech activity detection purposes. This detection is very useful in the case of half-duplex conversation between two stations, in the case of simultaneous transmission of voice and data over the same pair of cables by the method of interspersion data on voice traffic, and also in echo suppressor...
Dual tone decoding
Two integrated tone decoders, XR-567 units, can be connected (as shown in Fig. 1A) to permit decoding of simultaneous or sequential tones. Both units must be on before an output is given. R1C1 and R'IC'l are chosen, respectively, for Tones 1 and 2. If sequential tones (1 followed by 2) are to be decoded, then C3 is made very large to delay...
Telephone hold button
The on-hook (no load) voltage across the red-green wires will be 48 V or slightly less when all telephones are on-hook (disconnected). When any telephone goes off-hook the load current flowing in the telephone causes the voltage to fall below 5 volts dc. Although the telephone hold is connected across the red-green wires, silicon control...
Telephone-controlled tape starter
This circuit converts a tape recorder into a completely automatic telephone conversation recording instrument that needs no external power source. Voltage at the switch terminals of tape recorder applied to a pair of Darlington-connected transistors, Ql and Q2, will turn on and start the tape recorder. To turn the transistors off, and thereby...
Transistor Ql of the headset amplifier circuit amplifies the 30 mV signal, that would have gone to the earphones, to .5 V. which sufficiently drives the stereo earphones. Capacitor Cl blocks any de current from shorting back into the telephone base. Capacitor C2 provides the very important ac signal short around the amplifier. Capacitor C3...
This circuit shows the TP5700 directly interfacing to a low-voltage DTMF generator. VREGt supplies the necessary 2-V minimum bias to enable the TP5380 to sense key closures and pull its mute output high. VREGt then switches to a 3-V regulated output to sustain the tone dialer during tone generation. The TP5700 DTMF input incorporates the...
This circuit consists of two audio channels, a control circuit, and a hybrid irlterface circuit. The gain of each audio channel is conÂ· trolled by the control circuitry, with the use of a voltage controlled amplifier (VCA). The inputs to the control circuit are obtained from each of the audio channels. The hybrid interface circuit performs...
Here is a simple method of series connection into the telephone set suitable for PABX or short line applications.

When the first keyed digit is recognized, Ml goes to logic 1, muting the telephone network by switching on the low on...
The oscillator is a Motorola MC14410CP chip using a 1-MHz crystal. The chip generates both the high and low tones, feeding the energy to the amplifier through 1-K resistors and the 1-I"F capacitor. Values for the output resistors can vary from a few hundred 0 to about 60 KO. The value of the resistor shunting the crystal can vary from about 3...
The TP5700 or TP5710 can reduce the number of components required to build a pulse-dialing telephone, as shown. The usual current source can be eliminated by using the VREGl output to power a TP50982A low-voltage (1. 7 V) pulse dialer via a blocking diode. A low forward-voltage drop diode such as a Schottky type is necessary because VREGl is...
When the handset is lifted and power is applied to the circuit, Q2 is fed base current through R2, which in turn drives Ql. C2 is charged via R3 in series with D1 to (Vz1 -0. 7) V. When the minimum operating Vnv voltage is reached, power on reset occurs via the rc network of Cl and RS. Q2 is maintained in the on condition by Gl, while Q3, and...
A sensitive-gate SCR provides a line-holding current of 20 to 40 mA, depending on loop resistance. It also lights an LED to give the user a positive indication that the telephone line is on hold. The 20 to 40 mA should prove sufficient to hold the majority of lines, but it might require increasing-by decreasing the size of Rl-in individual...
This encoder uses a single contact per key keyboard and provides all other switching functions electronically. The diode connected between terminals 8 and 15 prevents the output from goitrg more than 1 V negative with respect to the negative supply Vss. The circuit operates overthe supply voltage range from 3.5 V1o 15 Von the device side of...
This indicator senses the switching on and off of the 48-V de line voltage and transmits the pulses to logic circuitry. An Hl1A10 threshold coupler, with capacitorfiltering, gives a simple circuit which can provide dial pulse indication, and yet reject high levels of induced 60-Hz noise. The DHD805 provides reverse bias protection for the LED...
The telephone-line decibel meter and line-voltage sensor shown lets you accurately monitor and adjust telephone sound levels. The 600-0 resistor properly terminates the line.
This circuit can be used in telephone lines for speech activity detection purposes. This detection is very useful in the case of half-duplex conversation between two stations-in the case of siroultaneous transmission of voice and data over the same pair of cables by the method of interspersion data on voice traffic, and also in echo...
This circuit is a bidirectional amplifier that can amplify both signals of a duplex telephone conversation. It uses the principle of negative resistance. Obviously, such an amplifier could easily be unstable; however, you can adjust Rl for maximum amplification and the circuit will remain stable.
This recorder can be connected to the telephone lines just about any place, and no external power source is needed. The tape recorder"s switch terminals are applied to a pair of transistors, connected as Darlingtons, that are used to turn the recorder on and off. When the telephone is off-hook there"s usually about 50 Vdc across the phone...
Each and every time a phone on the same line or calling numberis taken off-hook, the circuit will be activated to control an external electronic circuit. If several extension telephones are used on one phone line, the circuit can be useful as a busy indicator. LEDl contains a special flashing red LED that makes an excellent indicator for a...
Q1 and Q2 are used to form the basis of an interface circuit for attaching a cassette recorder to the phone line. The circuit does not require a power supply because operating power is drawn from the telephone line itself. The incoming signal is fed across a bridge-rectifier circuit, consisting of diodes D1 through D4. When the phone is on...
The IR transmitter connects to a telephone cir cuit, and transmits both sides of all telephone conversations to any line-of"sight location, within 40 feet. No !fOWer is taken from the central office, as long as all phones remain on-hook. The current flows through the phone and back to the central office, thereby keying their equipment. We...
Audio from the telephone is inductively coupled to the base of Ql. which is used as a preamp. The preamp provides a gain of about 75 dB, to boost the input signal from .about 4 mV to about 300 mV pk-pk. If you use a higher gain transistor, increase the value of R9 to produce a Q point, measured from minus to the collector of Ql, of one-half...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
