Question Baehr & Cell Phone Use, Two-Up

My use of the Baehr intercom continues to evolve. I recently plugged in the cell phone interface cable and it's working fine (thank you, Raffy). Yesterday, on a trip with my wife, a call came in while we both were talking via the intercom. We barely heard the phone ring and could BARELY make out the caller's side of the call. Cell phone volume was turned all the way up. My wife and I were both talking with the caller. I told my wife to unplug her helmet lead while I continued with the phone call. From that point on I had no problem on the phone call -- volume was perfect, as it is one-up.

I suspect the vox between rider and passenger is muting the incoming phone audio, just like it does the bike audio (radio & CD). Does that make sense? If so, can anything be done about that or should I just have her unplug when the phone rings?

Hi Howard, I use an LG cell phone with the Baehr. The phone makes a short scratchy noise when it auto answers, but does not ring in the helmet earphones. When people say hello, it cuts out the stereo if it is on. Sometimes it can be difficult to know people are on due to the lack of any ring. My wife and I can both hear the caller, but only I can speak with the caller. The cell phone is plugged into lead #1 of the Baehr. When my wife speaks to me it does not cut out the caller, but rather I can hear both of them. I leave the cell phone volume where it is when it is not connected to the Baehr. Hope this helps.
