A phone-patch allows a ham to connect his radio to the standard telephone ‘POTS’ line and let someone at the other end of the phone-line communicate with the person at the other end of the radio link; often this was used for third-party traffic. Phone-patches can be run between third parties in the US, and also to people in a limited number of countries that have third party agreements with the US.
