Figure 5-21 is a simple diagram for a two-circuit,
four-drop annunciator. Stations that have several
sound-powered telephones, each on a different circuit,
are provided with drop-type annunciators to identify the
circuit of the station that originates the call. Each drop

device is used.
The IC/D noninterrupted call signal station is made
of cast aluminum, with all of the equipment mounted on
the cover except for the terminal board and a
sound-powered jack outlet. Equipment mounted on the
cover include a 16-position rotary selector switch, an
index plate, a hand-operated magneto generator, a
howler unit, and an attenuator. The associated
sound-powered telephone circuit may be either the
string or the switchboard type.
To operate the station, you simply turn the rotary
selector switch to the station to be called and crank the
magneto generator handle. The howler (a modified
sound-powered telephone receiver unit) at the selected
station will produce a high distinctive howl. The howl
will continue for as long as the calling station generator
is cranked. The attenuator is used to control the volume
of the individual howler at its respective station. Each
