cordless phones

A cordless phone can communicate with a base station up to a few hundred feet away and receive signals from it. Cordless phones first appeared around 1980. The frequency used by the earliest cordless phones was 27 MHz. 

They experienced the following issues:

  • limited range
  • Poor sound quality—noisy and ridden with static because walls and appliances interfered with the signals.
  • Poor security—Due to the constrained number of channels, individuals could readily eavesdrop on signals from other cordless phones.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) awarded cordless phones the 47–49 MHz frequency band in 1986, which lessened their reliance on electricity and resolved their interference issues. The phones still had a short range and subpar sound, though. The FCC approved the 900 MHz frequency range in 1990 due to the more congested 43-50 MHz cordless phone frequency. This increased frequency made cordless phones more accurate, broadcast longer distances, and choose from more channels. The first 900 MHz frequency-band digital cordless phones were introduced in 1994. 

Analog cordless phone conversations were relatively easy to eavesdrop on, but digital signals made the phones more secure and reduced eavesdropping. The digital spread spectrum (DSS) was first made available for cordless phones in 1995. With this technology, digital information could be split up and sent over several frequencies between the receiver and the base, thereby eliminating the possibility of listening in on cordless conversations. The 2.4 GHz band was made available for cordless phone use by the FCC in 1998. By operating at this frequency, a cordless phone can now be managed over a better range and is no longer within the scope of most radio scanners, significantly enhancing security.

Base: The cordless phone’s base unit is plugged into your wall’s telephone jack. If you open up the floor and expose the circuit board, you will see several components that carry out the ground functions.

Phone line interface: It receives and transmits telephone signals through the phone line. The phone line interface, user controls, and speakerphone (if available) are all radio-amplified, and radio signals are sent and received to and from the handset. Providing low voltage electricity to the circuits and recharging the phone’s battery

Phone Line Interface: Components of phone line interfaces have two purposes. To transmit the ringer signal to the handset, they first send it to the radio components or, if the bell is on the base, to the bell. This notifies you that a call is coming in. Second, they transfer and receive minute variations in the electrical current flowing through the phone line to and from the base’s radio components. When you speak, you cause minute changes in the phone line’s electrical current, and your caller hears these changes. When the caller says hello to you, the same thing occurs.

Radio Components: A DC power cube transformer provides the low voltage required by the electrical components on the circuit board. The circuit board’s power components work with the power cube to supply current to recharge the phone’s battery. Dialing keys, liquid crystal displays (LCDs) for caller ID, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for power and charge indicators, and solid-state memory for answering machine or call-back functionality are additional features on some bases, in addition to the components stated above.

LCD or LED Displays- Most phones feature one or more light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that can signal various conditions, such as an open line or a low battery. Similar to cell phones, some handsets contain an LCD that can show caller ID functions. If the LCD is backlit or shiny, you may still view it in dimly lit spaces.

Battery- The handset’s battery powers the phone’s electrical parts. A rechargeable battery powers each cordless phone handset (nickel-cadmium, nickel-metal hydride, or lithium). An indicator light on the handset illuminates or flashes when the battery is low. Some phones’ “beeping” noises may signal a low battery. The cordless phone’s battery is then recharged by doing so.

How do cordless phones work?


Many cordless phones have many of the same features as standard telephones, and many models offer many different features.

Major Features

A cordless phone includes a phone and a radio transmitter and receiver, so keep that in mind. The following problems exist with a radio transmitter/receiver that does not live with a regular cable phone:

  • range
  • sound quality
  • security

The distance between the handset and base is called “Range.” The environment, how radio signal information is delivered, and interfering objects like walls and appliances can all impact the sound quality. Because the radio signals from the receiver and handset travel over open airways, security is a concern, which can be picked up by other devices (other cordless phones, baby monitors, radio scanners).


Your cordless phone uses the same radio frequencies as any other radio because it is a radio transmitter/receiver and uses those specified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). To allow simultaneous talking and listening, cordless phones work over three leading frequency bands (the base and receiver use two closely related but distinct frequencies within the band):

  • 43-50 MHz
  • 900 MHz
  • 2.4 GHz
  • 5.8 GHz

Early cordless phones often operated in the 43–50 MHz range, which is still accessible in budget-friendly devices. These phones’ narrow ranges (about 1,000 feet/330 meters) and inferior sound quality are caused by the low frequency (due to interference from structures and appliances). Radio scanners and nearby baby monitors can also easily pick up the 43–50 MHz phone transmissions.
