dbo:abstract
  • The model 202 telephone was a desktop telephone produced by Western Electric for the Bell System from 1930 to 1939, and by Northern Electric in Canada. Refurbished units were installed into the mid-1950s. It was an updated version of the 102-type telephone, containing the newly developed anti-sidetone circuitry to reduce electronic feedback from the transmitter (mouthpiece) to the receiver (earpiece). Like the 102 hand telephone, the 202 telephone consisted of the desk-top telephone instrument with the telephone handset and a physically separate subscriber set (desk set box) which contained the ringer and the electrical components to interface the desk set with the telephone network. Visually, it was distinguishable from the 102 by the oval shaped base, whereas the 102 had a round base. In addition, the 202 had the number 5H dial, whereas the 102 used the number 4H dial with a distinct "clickety clack" sound. (en)
