Getting the old phone to work.

A friend gave me this link to the Lincolns Online Forum, about a member getting a phone working. I can't tell if he's in the US, or Germany. I don't know if it applies in North America. Does anyone know if this really is converting the analog signal to digital? If so, is it that transceiver in the trunk, or the antenna he uses? Also, isn't the phone he mentions, the one that was from the factory? The numbers sound similar(Motorola 2700 International), but it looks different.

I'd love to get my original phone working. I've seen it done with large base sets for home use, but not a working system. If it's an entire system you have to replace, I'm not that interested. My phone still beeps through the speakers when you power it & dial. That dialing sound sure brings back memories of the early 90's!!
