Is any one able to Revive My motorola Tel T-A-C 200

by AlexThe80s / February 20, 2013 7:30 AM PST

I Have A few Older Cellphones that no longer work. Since I cant afford to build my own Analog towers I figure some one out there knows how to modify the transceiver so it will work on a gsm network. I dont care If it requires extensive modifying of original parts or even if the guts are completely removed and all new hardware installed as long as the old battery works and the phone appears original. If you dont know how to do a Tel T-A-C I also have an old ultra classic II and a Nokia 101 that I would also consider resto-moding. What ever it takes. Even If you have information that may help, Dont give me that guff about it being impossible I WILL Find a way. any help is appreciated.

This is more than any one locally has provided. My soldering skills are limited but iv got literally a bag of old boards to practice on, Im so exited some one replied same day to such an obscure question but I guess I found a home for such mad scientist questions eh? Iv been waiting for the right time to crack it open and i think I begin construction immediately thanks to this information. It will be a long time in the making but pictures will be posted when its done. Thank you and long live Legacy Hardware!

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
