Um .....  Asterisk supports full-duplex telephony, so there's no need for any 
of that "over to you, roger and out" business -- you can actually talk in both 
directions at once  (assuming your voices are pitched far enough apart for 
each of you to be able to understand what the other is saying).

You could try wiring the normally-closed contact of a change-over switch 
across the microphone in the handset of any compatible phone .....  that 
should silence it until the switch is pressed.


The best programming language is 63% tin, 37% lead.
