(Added a Windows Blue Box program to this post.....)
(Added Collectors' Net access)
(Added conference bridge at (2600)KP+2111+ST)
(Added new Evan Doorbell recordings)
(Added a recording of ProjectMF in operation)
(Added instructions for direct-connecting Asterisk)
(Added Free World Dialup access at 862548)
(Added new Evan Doorbell recordings)
(Added Joybubbles Interview)
(Added comment record/playback)
Added "stacking" number. See post on "stacking" for more info.)
(Added Telephreak direct access)
(Added 2600 supervision test)
(Added direct SIP access)
(Added Haxor Joybubbles interview)
(Added Goog411 access)
(Added "Sounds of Long Distance" recordings)

Check out www.projectmf.com. Phiber created software patches to allow Asterisk PBX software running on a Linux PC to simulate the old 2600 and MF (multifrequency) controlled network of the 50's-60's-70's.

Remember the Esquire article?

I have a projectmf server up on 630-485-2995. It has instructions for using it when you dial in.

Access is also available via:

CNET: 1-762-2600/2601 (see www.ckts.info for gateway numbers)
Free World Dialup: 862548
Asterisk direct connection: exten => 2600,1,Dial(IAX2/cnetguest@projectmf.homelinux.com/17622600)
SIP phone direct connection: 17622600@projectmf.homelinux.com

Note that you need a source of 2600 Hz tone and an MF dialer (NOT a regular DTMF (Touch-Tone) dialer to make ANY use of this at all.

Perfectly legal, as the system is totally private. This is more than a simulation. The call is going over a trunk group of 24 SF/MF trunks, although both sides of the trunks are terminated on the same PC. The hardware is two extra dedicated NIC cards on the PC running T1 over Ethernet over a loopback Ethernet cable. Your incoming call gets looped over one of the 24 trunks before terminating over VOIP, so you have 2600 and MF control.

Use a short burst of 2600, wait for the wink acknowledgement, followed by the MF digits. The 2600 Hz tone must be played at a somewhat higher level than the MF digits.

The system will read back the digits it hears if you dial incorrectly. Play around with volume levels, especially if just holding the PC speaker up to the phone. The MF tones do not need to be excessively loud.

You can divert a call through the box if you can generate the 2600 and MF. Just dial 2600, KP, a 10-digit phone number (no leading "1"), and ST. Experiment on the test numbers to get the levels right first.

Need a software Blue Box to use with this? Try the attached Windows application (at the end of this message). You need Microsoft .NET framework installed for it to work. You can use the number keys on the right side of your keyboard (if you use a full-size keyboard) as an almost-real Blue Box, as well as the point and click method!

Some numbers to try:

2600 <pause> KP + 101 + ST "Weasels" recording
2600 <pause> KP + 102 + ST "Monkeys" recording
2600 <pause> KP + 103 + ST "Moo 1" recording

Here are the tones. I plan on creating a box using the Basic Stamp2 microcontroller by Parallax.com. It has some useful commands like DTMFOUT for standard tones, and FREQOUT which can be programmed with these MF tones as arguments.

Added a simple Blue Box application attachment to my original post. You need the Microsoft .NET framework installed to use it. Works well with my ProjectMF box. You can use the number keys on the right side of your keyboard (if you use a full-size keyboard) as an almost-real Blue Box, as well as the point and click method!

There are a few test numbers set-up at this website. The PTSN ingress numbers are located here. I played around the other night with some of the Member's listings and found some really leet configurations. If you have time give them a try.

P.s. - the guy who operates the +1 (206) 203-6610 number called me and wondered why I was placing so many calls into the system. I told him who i was and he spoke to me as if I had three heads. He was cool with me playing with the system. I guess that's the price I pay for sending caller ID. ^_^

The system is down at the moment due to a DSL router outage at AT&T. Should be up by 4 PM, Central.

Hey df99..

Why not set up a message answering service? so ppl can leave messages and recordings etc.. also we must think about the tandem stacking potential of 2 projectMF systems, need to think about that, and when I get enough time to dust mine off and get in-dials etc then maybe we should look at that, ill be mailing you soon, when I get time....

Added Blue Box access to the Collectors Net (CNET).

Dial KP + 011 + country code + number + ST

CNET is a group of elctromechanical switch hobbiests who use asterisk and VOIP to network their switches. There are some very cool test numbers out there.

A complete listing is at: http://www.ckts.info/directory.php

For example:

KP + 011 + 44 + 18076969 + ST

....will connect to the Mental Health Hotline recording on a PBX in Edmonton, England

KP + 011 + 44 + 3528081 + ST

...will connect to a "Speaking Clock" time announcement running on an electronic PBX in North Wales

North America country code is 1 and required for US CNET calls.

Enjoy......

Do play nicely; many of those lines ring actual phones in peoples' homes. It's also a good idea to leave a callback number, perhaps a recorded explanation, that is valid from CNET (or the PSTN); many switchers block invalid numbers to reduce nuisance. (Yes, there have been some problems with unknown people calling at odd hours.)

I added a conference bridge to ProjectMF.

Dial: 2600 (pause) KP + 2111 + ST

I used "2111" in honor of the old Vancouver conference, referenced in the Esquire article.

Please exit with "#" before hanging up.

"*" gives a menu of setting options. "8" exits the menu.

Read the original post for access instructions.

Where can I get the necessary module(s) to add to my asterisk box to join the project mf game? Can't find it on the projectmf site or via Google.
