Clear Box Plans by The Jolly Roger

The clear box is a new device which has just been invented that can be

used throughout Canada and rural United States. The clear box works on

"PostPay" payphones (fortress fones). Those are the payphones

that don't require payment until after the connection is established.

You pick up the fone, get a dial tone, dial your number, and then

insert your money after the person answers.

If you don't deposit the money then you can not speak to the person on

the other end because your mouth piece is cut off but not the ear-piece.

(obviously these phones are nice for free calls to weather or time or

other such recordings). All you must do is to go to your nearby Radio

Shack, or electronics store, and get a four-transistor amplifier and a

telephone suction cup induction pick-up. The induction pick-up would be

hooked up as it normally would to record a conversation, except

that it would be plugged into the output of the amplifier and a

microphone would be hooked to the input. So when the party

that is being called answers, the caller could speak through the little

microphone instead. His voice then goes through the amplifier and out

the induction coil, and into the back of the receiver where

it would then be broadcast through the phone lines and the other

partywould be able to hear the caller. The Clear Box thus

'clears up' the problem of not being heard. Luckily, the line will

not be cut-off after a certain amount of time because it will wait

forever for the coins to be put in.

The biggest advantage for all of us about this new clear box is the

fact that this type of payphone will most likely become very common.

Due to a few things: 1st, it is a cheap way of getting the DTF,

dial-tone-first service, 2nd, it doesn't require any special equipment,

(for the phone company) This payphone will work on any phone line.

Usually a payphone line is different, but this is a regular phone line

and it is set up so the phone does all the charging, not the company.
