Chuck, are your (Australian) phones compatible with the analog telephone equipment and the POTS standard that we use here in the US?

Or, do your phones have 3- or 4-conductor 3mm or 1.5mm (1/8" or 1/16") jacks for earphone/mic plug-ins?

If so, this shouldn't be terribly hard to rig up. All one would have to do is to:

* Have a VOX-enabled HT with a factory-supplied headset/mic with PTT button
* Quickly wire-up a box that would accept audio input/output from a typical Australian phone, e.g., 4-contact handset plug, and audio input/output from the factory-supplied headset/mic, acting as a patch panel

This is something that would have to be configured/adjusted BEFORE being used in an emergency (adjusting the delay on VOX on each HT, etc.), but if each town had one ham in it, who could set up this HT/box combo so it would work on his own personal phone, and then had a second HT that could be taken to wherever the contact needed to be made from (house where accident victim was taken to), then you'd have a system.

How hard is this?
