The station display has 2 lines of 16 characters each. During a conversation the display always shows the number and name for the station you are connected to. The display also shows the selected audio program or the text of an absence message left at the station, or indication of received voice message. The display shows help messages in certain situations, and can be used to find the directory number of any station or feature in the AlphaCom system.

NOTE: The displays shown in the drawings are examples. What is actually shown may be different. The AlphaCom System is very flexible, allowing display texts to be changed to suit each application and language.
