I don’t think you can use “cable” wire. You need a 2 wire cable like speaker wire set up (using speaker wire would be exspensive). I believe the newer digital field phones take a 4 wire cable but I’m not 100% sure of that since I was out before such “modern” convinces. There might be a way to use the old hard wire landline phone wires. I’ll have to remember to ask a guy I know who is a Verizon line tech.
Something else we used the T/A-1’s for was as a makeshift “blasting machine”. We would take electric flashbulbs and rig them up on commo wire around our parameter during training. A push of the generator on the TA-1 would provide enough electric to set off a string of those flash bulbs- good for disorienting and ruining the night vision of those folks attacking up.
