EE-8-B Field Telephone/Telegraph The EE-8-B
has a handset TS-13-E with transmitter 141914
W. E. Co. 6/42 and a Receiver D-141915 WECO
7 10 42. The biggest thing that can go wrong
is corrosion. Next would be the handset cord.
That can be easily fixed if you're not trying
to make it appear original. The rest of the
insides is pretty tough. I'd be real surprised
if you can't get them to work. One little
feature which some people don't know is when
you turn the crank only the other phone rings.
Yours doesn't ring. The handset has a butterfly
switch which you must press in order to talk.
While you have this switch operated the battery
is being used. Otherwise, the batteries have
no drain. There is one more switch, it is
labeled CB or LB. This switch changes the
mode from Common battery to local battery.
In CB mode, the hanger for the handset is
the circuit. You could connect the phone as
an external to your household phone line and
receive only. "
