Object Lesson: Bush Airwave Cordless Telephone
Sunday 14 February 1999
Well, with the Bush Airwave cordless telephone (pounds 49.99), this need never happen to you again. Cannily built into the back of the phone is a programmable seven-key universal remote control. A remote control which, by definition, cannot be mislaid when anyone calls - it rings, you see. The phone itself has the usual features: paging, redial, 150m range, noise reduction and gives you a full six hours of talktime.
It's available in yellow, white and green, and although it doesn't have the technically superior sound quality offered by the latest digital cordless phones, it uses the most recently released radio frequencies, which promise less likelihood of your neighbour using the same channel. And anyway, you've got eight channels to choose from. Available from Tandy, or call 01923 859 777 for stockists. David Phelan
