Dial up noise

>> No.71594416

Pick it up and crank it to alert the operator on the other end to connect to the line.From there you instruct the operator on the call details. They didn't have a number system so it would be something like "Evergreen Locust 143" as their "phone number" and the operator would terminate her half of the connection and repeat the crank on her end to the operator inbetween if it was a call to an external hub and instruct her on the details. If it was local she would crank the homeowner's phone for a ring and terminate her connection and complete the connection by plugging the other half in to the destination line.

The pulse rotatory phones were only possible once they standardized the number database.

>> No.71594444

Phone companies discontinued pulse dialing nearly two decades ago. If it's a rotatory phone like we're discussing then the phone itself is converting the pulses into a touch tone pattern for the phone company to handle.
