More about telephones….. Call signals to places close by travel along wires or cables buried underground .But when the person you call is very far away, the electrical signals sent from your phone are changed into invisible waves of energy called microwaves, which travel long distances through the air. These waves are send to space and it’s connected to satellite and then bounces back to earth. An antenna at a receiving station near the home of your friend picks up the waves and changes them to electrical signals once more. They travel by cable to the telephone office that services your friend's neighborhood, where his or her number is identified. The signal rings, your friend picks it up. There is a microphone connected her telephone, and then you hear it in seconds.
How do telephones work? When you pick up a phone, a low electrical current allows you to dial the series of numbers that will connect you to the phone of a friend, for example. A local telephone office receives this information when you dial and sends your call in the right direction.
