The TW-47 is a stand-alone interface designed to connect a 2-way radio or walkie-talkie into a single channel of a standard Clear-Com, RTS, or compatible 2-wire party-line intercom system. It provides both audio connection and “push-to-talk” transmitter keying, using standard Call signals.

Note: Access the Encore Power Supply Calculator to estimate power requirements for analog partyline systems.


  • Interfaces any 2-way radio to a single channel of Clear-Com, RTS or compatible system
  • Accepts any walkie-talkie or radio with headset and microphone jacks
  • Individual transmit and receive level controls
  • Bi-color LED audio level indicator
  • Powered by the intercom line
