    Unlikely but just a thought, I've never had issues with them but the LED's are easily replaced if you are OK with a decent soldering iron.

    Have you tried swapping the RKP's to see if it's a voltage issue?

    2 Way Monitored Alarm Silent Calling

    Why do you keep saying you can't afford ADT? Also, are you confident that they can't listen in at any time?

    It could also be something as simple as a fuse though...

    Battery is recommended every 4 years, however as you rightly note the loft is a piss poor place to fit the panel (thousands are fitted in them though) but the extremities cause premature wear so I'd arrange a new battery whilst you are up there. The battery wont be the cause as the unit is dialing but I'd check voltages and loads in alarm both at the speech jobby and phone lines. The unit itself sounds like it's goosed and the only thing the speech and mic have in common would be the processor so probs not worth fixing.
