    patched into

    can u please tell me what is the translation of "patched into" in the following context?

    "
    There is an organization in Britain that you can sit in one room, and it is patched into 150 radiostations. I sat down and did 43 consecutive radio interviews. "

    Re: patched into

    Hi ionutzavram,

    patch = 1. connect by a temporary electrical, radio, or telephonic connection: Ralph had patched her through to the meeting by walkie-talkie.


    2. become connected in this way: stay on the open line and we'll patch in on you.


    a telephone patch is any connection between a phone line and another communications device, whether it be a radio, a tape recorder, a data device (such as a modem), or even another phone line. Sometimes called an autopatch especially when used in amateur radio

    Regards.
