  1. Nice! That looks like an XY universal switch. The thing about XY is that all of the control circuitry and relays that would normally be built into a regular step selector, connector or linefinder are on a separate part of the rack. So that switch could be plugged into any type of control circuitry and work. They are pretty much useless without that control circuity, unfortunately.
  2. I was looking around eBay, and found a DMS 500 for sale! I'm surprised to see one on eBay, I thought they were still relatively current. http://www.ebay.com/itm/301983796670
  3. Are there any that ARE NOT being replaced this year?
  4. 907-852-9901 - The tones after the SIT are TTY tones, also called TDD or telecommunications device for the deaf, devices used to send text over phone lines. They use 5 bit baudot, so capital letters only, plus some symbols, it's 50 baud / bits per second I think. There's some data after the recording too, I'm sure the one at the beginning says "HD" and the one after says the announcement text. ============ Moderator's Note ============ TDD/TTY baud rates tend to vary but you are for the most part correct. 45.5 and 50 baud are probably the most common and I've even called at least one that ran at 100 baud. The "standard" (meaning, most widely agreed-on) parameters are 1start/5 data/1.5 stop. This format is also very widely used on packet radio nets and the RTTY software MMTTY can be easily configured to generate and receive TDD-format data. With an acoustic coupler of some sort connected to the microphone and headphone-out jacks of a sound card, or even a pair of inter boxes, it's possible to use it as a computer-based TDD system (I've done it). ANSI 8N1/7E1 format (ASCII) is also sometimes used but that sounds like a regular computer modem. -Scratchy
  5. 800-225-5288's menu now only offers credit card and calling card calls, although pressing 2 still gets you to the collect call option.

  7. I've been scanning 212-NXX-9901 tonight. Attached is what I have so far. 9901.txt
  8. 212-255-9901 "Due to year 2000 testing, the system will be unavailable from 5pm to 9pm" My guess on this one is that someone decided to "temporarily" overwrite the verification announcement with this message for a bank, because they were out of announcement channels, and forgot about it. 16 years later...it's still here. 212-757-9901 -- (Male voice, possibly switchman) We're sorry, but since you did not select a long distance company, this call cannot be completed as dialed. To place this call in an emergency, dial 0, and an operator will assist you. You may designate a long distance company to handle this type of call by calling a New York Telephone service representative during regular business hours. That one went to reorder for 2 minutes or so after I called it.
  9. Here's a video of it: And the AXE-10, just for comparison: I need a better recording method. The IP phone is using SCCP on Asterisk 1.8.13.0.
  10. That number does something pretty strange, it'll go to different voicemail systems sometimes, and sometimes it'll go to the sensaphone. I even got a british voicemail with a British ring! Unfortunately, my Radio Shack handset in line recorder doesn't work anymore, but I made a video of it. I can remember getting these: Standard cell phone voicemail box not set up yet message (you know the one) "Welcome to Cisco Unity Messaging!..." "Press 1 to leave a voicemail, or start faxing at any time." "The person you have dialed can't take your call now..." "Please leave your message after the tone..." -asterisk voice "Please record your message after the tone" -Professional, southern voice European ring (Might be a ring from Skype, it has that echo) going to American ring and "Thank your for calling. Press 1 to leave a message, to leave a fax press 2, or begin faxing at any time." And when you finally do get the sensaphone, You get two slightly out of sync ring tones. Also, the time is wrong and it says there was a power failure for 0 seconds.
  11. Holy shit, 832-251-9900 takes the cake for the worst quality recording I've ever heard! Sounds like they just held the microphone up to a blastingly loud speaker phone. Oddly, the bad quality recording times out to a much better quality version of the same one.
  12. You know that whine you hear in the background of many trunks? Well, I was calling (604) 453-2212 (a random number) today, and I head the whine in the background turning on and off at the same rate as a busy signal, during the ringing, but it went away when the guy answered. anyone else ever hear this? I never have.
  13. 746-9911 is a modem carrier. You must be pretty young, not knowing what that is.
  14. I've had free DIDs from callcentric for years now and they've been great.
