Setting up a NEW 1982 Answering Machine (with Bluetooth!)

Unboxing and testing a new old stock Record-a-Call Model 675 from 40 years ago! A woodgrain-clad answering machine that uses full-size compact cassette tapes to record messages, which I’ve paired with a lovely 1979 Deco-Tel Chest Phone. Let’s try it out with an XLink Bluetooth adapter on a modern VoIP service!
