    What is this ???

    I think it the 'brains' of an old car phone. It was securly bolted under the front seat of my old C-matic. There's a phillips head high security key required to remove it (which was luckily in place).

    It's a BOMB!!


    It's got very computer type plugs on it; It doesn't look like a phone thingy. Not off something like a computerised trip meter/rally time & distance calculator of some type?

    Hee hee,

    I should have mentioned it has "Manufactured in Australia by Philips for Telecom Australia" on it's label. Model FM9030.

    Should I chase up a handpeice and ariel and leave it in the car as a working (but not working, as it would have to be analogue ) period accessory

    I think Alan was referring to the box with his bomb comment


    I had a similar sort of box hidden in the dash of the XM and Brad S tried to find out what it was. I knew there had been a mobile in the car as it still has the aerial and mike. After talking to Greg at CC it turns out it was for an analogue mobile. Since removed the box and wiring to save confusion later but left the aerial and mike there till I get really carried away.

    Before you said that I would have said an interface for a CD radio (yes some have RS232 ports on them for programming).
