Under trial conditions, no problems were encountered with Freestyle 300 when connected to any small, medium or large PABXS. If problems occur in the field, a 1.7 Mhz Medium Wave RF filter (e.g. BT Plug in RF filter Item Code 87 7596) may need to be connected between the cordless telephone and the PBX/KTS.
Cordless telephones can be affected by interference. e.g. from fluorescent lights or electrical appliances and range can be reduced by the screening effects of building structures. e.g. steel framework, foil backed wallboards.
There are 8 pairs of frequencies allocated for CT 1 cordless telephony use, interference or overhearing may occur where other cordless telephones on the same or adjacent channels are located nearby. In such cases Freestyle 300 should be selected to have the greatest (at least two) channel difference from any other nearby CT1 cordless telephones.
