I have been told that none of the Cisco IP phones support dry closure. So, what are my other options?? It's a little bit emabrassing to see hundreds of thousands of dollars of communication equipment operate together seamlessly, but see a few Cisco phones not able to join the party.
Cisco has developed a whole set of solution to interface radio, look on CCO for "land mobile radio architecture". These will use E&M interfaces and the "phone patch" box that interfaces to the radio itself. Check it out, if it not what your radio uses, let us know what exactly "dry closure" is.
