TELEPHONE No's 10005 & 10006
Venue is a self contained press-button telephone for table mounted use developed from the
Sceptre telephone in two versions:
Venue 24 (Telephone 10005AR, shown right) with 10 pulses per second (pps) signalling and earth recall facilities, which has been superseded by Venue 24E.
Venue 24E (Telephone 10006AR) with customer switchable 10 pps (pulse), mixed/or MF4 (tone) signalling and earth or timed break recall. Both models are similar in appearance and offer the following facilities.
a. Tone Caller - Incoming calls are signalled by a tone caller with adjustable volume control.
b. Secrecy - Pressing the SECRECY button will cut off the transmission without affecting incoming speech.
c. Last Number Redial - Lifting the handset and pressing the LAST NUMBER button will cause the last number dialled, to be pulsed out.
The number may also be transferred to the Main memory.
d. Last Exchange - Number Redial - The Venue 24 assumes that any number more than 4 digits long is an exchange line call and stores this separately enabling extension calls to be made without affecting the stored last exchange number dialled.
e. 24 Store Memory - Each of the 12 keypad buttons has two 16-digit memory stores (lower bank and upper bank). The telephone will give a beep to confirm that the number has been stored.
Numbers longer than 16 digits may be handled by using two memory stores or by manually dialling some of the digits and storing the remainder in a memory store.
Numbers may be deleted (with handset off) by pressing the MEMORY STORE button (once or twice as appropriate) and then pressing the keypad button that the number is stored under.
f. Notepad - Pressing the NOTEPAD button during a call enables users to use the keypad without sending pulses to line. Any digits (Max 16) subsequently keyed during the call are stored in the notepad memory (e.g. to store a number whilst speaking to Directory Enquiries). A number stored in the Notepad memory may also be transferred to the main memory.
g. Time Display - Pressing the TIMER/DISPLAY button will cause the time to be displayed.
h. Call Timing - Calls may be timed by pressing the TIMER/DISPLAY button during a call. The timer will stop as soon as the handset is replaced or if the line is disconnected.
i. Alarm - Venue 24 can be programmed to sound an alarm at any time within the current 24 hour period.
The alarm will sound for one minute at this time every 24 hours until another alarm has been set or until the alarm facility has been cancelled. Pressing the ALARM CANCEL button whilst it is sounding will silence the alarm until it is due to sound again.
j. Digit Display - The Display unit normally shows the time of day but will show 'dialled' Digits as they are keyed in and these will flash as they are transmitted to line. Pressing the TIMER/DISPLAY button will clear any dialled digits and show clock, timer or alarm digits only.
The digit display may also be used to display:
Numbers stored in the Notepad store. Numbers stored in the Main memory or numbers in the Last Number store.
NB on Venue 24E the second memory store under the '*' button is the 'Private Store' for PIN numbers etc, any numbers stored in this memory will not be displayed (a line of asterisks will appear instead).

The signalling and Recall switches should be set on installation according to the type of exchange/PBX it is used on, (M = MF, L = Pulse, T = Timed break recall, E = Earth recall) e.g.:-
M + T for Digital or Modernised exchanges and a minority of PBXS.
M + E for the majority of modern PBXS.
L + E for un-modernised exchanges and older PBXS.
Battery replacement, checking switch settings or unit change out. To avoid loss of programmed information the instrument should be connected to Line with the handset off-hook whilst batteries are being replaced.
Battery replacement advisable at 12 monthly intervals.
Idle - Normal Capacitor Loop test conditions via the master socket and tone caller/bell circuit. Venue telephones do not draw on-hook current.
Seized - When off-hook the electronic keypad and transmission circuitry may give high resistance telephone loop conditions as with other self contained press button telephones.
