The Czech Army Field Phone Model TP 25 is a self-contained military issued field phone from the Czech Republic.
Collectors of military surplus immediately recognize this style of field phone as it has been used by virtually every standing army in the world at one time. With simple operation and minimal battery requirements, these military field phones are great for remote camps, basements, garages, and other areas where a secure and reliable communication system is desired.
Very similar design to the German FF-33. This is the best surplus field phone I have used. Nice Bakelite case with rotating covers over the switchboard jacks (2) and ringer crank hole. Runs on 1 D-cell battery...just pick up a 1 D-cell battery holder and attach to posts. A nice feature is the rubber edges where the case and lid meet at the left side, which allow you to run the handset wire out and close the lid...then if you have the carry strap you can hang the handset from the hook on the strap or just put the handset across the lid sideways. By the way...the small white button is for testing the ringer. short the phone line terminals (a & b/Z), hold down the button, and crank the ringer crank.
This Czech phone i ordered along with my German field phone from KS is great. I love the brown Bakelite which is almost exactly like the WWII field phones. I am pleased with the overall condition and I'm now going to order a second sometime so i can use them together. For sure worth it, in my opinion because i love the history and functionality. The only problem is that with Bakelite you have to be careful since it can be fragile.
