Telephone pulse to DTMF converter


During a visit to the local recycling station I stumbled over an old GNT-A F68 telephone, and it was a bargain I could not say no to. When I connected the telephone to my Sipura SPA 2102 IP telephone adapted, I realized that I could not make any calls from the telephone as it dials through pulse and my adapter only accepts DTMF.
Surfing the web I found a design similar to the one below but for a Dutch T65 telephone and this model is somewhat different than my GNT-A F68. I then discussed the mater with my brother and we decided to try to make our own version for my GNT-A F68.

If you have a modern condenser microphone in your rotary telephone, this circuit will most likely not work, take a look at the pictures for more info on this.

We do not offer any support on this project any more! Our best advice is to get a DTMF dialer app for your smart phone e.g. DTMF dial
