I understand how to use 2 telephones (USA) with 9v battery and resistor and possibly .47mfd cap across resistor to make 2 station intercom BUT How do you use two HANDSETS(USA modern not old carbon type) to make an intercom? I cannot get into the handsets to see if earphone and the mic are connected to anything such as a diode. I have a red & green lead that I believe is earphone and a yellow (+) and black leads is mic. I have tried experimently to connect them as if they were phones and failed. I don't need much (gain/amplificarion if any) they will be connected across 5 feet of wire.
PLEASE REPLY TO NEWSGROUP-MY SPAN FILTER IS VERY AGRESSIVE.
