Technorama and CMTO are running a one-day Pathways session on how to select and set up a small phone system for your station!
This session is being hosted at 3MDR and there are a few spaces available for community radio volunteers and staff to join in.
When: Thursday, 19th July 10am-6pm
Where: Forest Park Homestead, Riley Rd, Upwey South, 3158
Cost: Free + access to heavily discounted rates on a Commander Phone system.
What will we cover: This session will feature Commander BN installation and programming. The Commander BN is a highly reliable hybrid analogue/digital phone system which suits many small (and very large) stations and interfaces easily to NBN phone lines.
If you don't have a phone system now, and if you have between one and five incoming phone lines, this is an excellent solution.
Who should come? This session will be ideal if you need a small phone system and don't have one; you have a Commander BN system but you don't know how to set it up; or you want to learn about configuring phone systems in general. Small is 1-5 incoming lines, and 4-12 extension handsets.
Topics will include:
- Planning the phone layout
- Sizing and specifying
- Commander BN programming
- Basic installation
- Testing the phone system
- How to interface a hybrid and your console
- Connecting the "phone call" light and muting the phone
- Interfacing the system to NBN
- What wiring you need in your station
- Where to go for help
- Tricks and tips
What you will take away: At the end of the session you will have performed basic configuration, you will have a system which works, and be confident about how to approach the documentation (supplied).
