    Anyone have any experience with building an adaptor that will let you
    plug a Rat Shack PTT mic into a standard cell phone headset jack?
    Sometimes I need to use my phone when background chatter is a problem,
    and a PTT would help keep the party on the line from hearing and being
    distracted by all the noise. Ideally, the sound could come out of the
    mic (as it does when plugged into an FRS radio) and be simplex

    My cell provider offers PTT service, but that only works when the
    other user is on a PTT handset (and requires a higher monthly rate
    plan). That's not what I need.

    There are some rather nice, moderately inexpensive, headsets available for
    you that include that specific feature. Quite similar to aircraft headsets
    that have that feature designed into them.

    Any suggestion as to where they might be found? All of my searches
    turn up tradtional headsets/earpieces. The best I could find is one
    with a mute button. That's won't cut it. I only want them to hear me
    when I press the button, like the aircraft sets.
