  1. Honestly I'm the same way, but I feel like a good software scanner can be a useful tool to narrow a search. If you have a program that captures call progress and a snippet of audio, you can always note interesting things, and go back to them later. A fine example (and one I'm hoping to find software for) is getting all the interesting things out of the remaining 1A switches. Time is of the essence, so I need to be able to scan faster than I could hand-scanning... So I can spend the time hand-scanning the interesting stuff before it goes away forever.
  2. So in conversation with TP on the conf (sorry about cutting out so quick; baby business), we determined that Augusta (Fleming East) is indeed still a 1A. That gives me high confidence that Lafayette (Main) is still as well, as they have matching intercept recordings and clicks. Along with Odessa (Lincoln), this leaves 3 1As in the modern PSTN. My money's on Odessa either being the next to cut-over, or being the Last Of The Mohicans.
  3. So just some quick dialling around on the cell phone going off of the list on Page 3, looking at the switches with no info or 2017 shut-offs: Warner-Robbins and Shreveport (South Highland) seem gone (recordings sound very digital). Odessa I suspect is still around, as noted above. Atlanta (Adamsville) seems gone. I suspect Augusta (Fleming East) is still around because it sounds like it clicks into the recording (706-560-9901 for example). There's also a short MW-to-silent term on 706-793-2298. Lagrange seems gone. EDIT BELOW THIS! Savannah (Derenne) seems gone. I suspect Lafayette Main is still around, as intercept answers the same way as Augusta (337-236-9999). However, I want to say that ThoughtPhreaker mentioned Lafayette had cut over... If this is the case, then Augusta is out too because both switches sound the same. Grand Rapids (Bell) seems... Like an enigma. Sandman CO search lists it as a 1A, but AT&T's 2005 Test Line Directory for Area Code 616 (https://primeaccess.att.com//commonfiles/amer/1897/IM-616.pdf) doesn't even show a 616-770 switch? Could it have been a 1A tandem? As it is, it seems to not be there as a 1A as reachable recordings (616-770-0000/9999) don't click. Laude (Florissant) seems gone. So without backing through the main list more (maybe checking Q4 2016 switches for holdovers), we have either 0, 1, or 3 1As left in the PSTN. I'm firmly convinced Odessa is still a 1A, but I could use confirmation.
  4. I want to say Odessa is still holding strong. Calling 432-333-8181 gives a NIS recording that repeats twice (and sounds interesting on the end of each repetition), but seems to very noticeably click into the busy or reorder (?!) that follows.
  5. Was peeking at the old Test Line forum, and found that this one's still an odd thing: (501) 374-0453 757-484-9987 sounds like a broken echo test? 978-772-9404 is the same, but someone mentioned it was an ISDN test line?
  6. For what it's worth, 0 + 710-867-5309 dialed from whatever VoIP switch WOW! uses gives reorder with no error message. 1 + 710-867-5309 gives the dial tone 'prompt' (which I believe is the PIN prompt). After 10 seconds, it drops to an error message: "We are unable to complete your call because operator assistance is not permitted for this call" 0 + 710-NCS-GETS also gives reorder. 1 + 710-NCS-GETS also gives the dial tone 'prompt'. After 10 seconds, it goes to the operator.
  7. Posting here as this is related to scanning / janning / wardialling. Thinking about repurposing an old Asus EEE PC netbook for some flavor of Linux, to install iWar / WarVOX for autojanning via VoIP (IAX2 is allegedly supported on both programs). Has anyone used either program, or know anything about them? Wanting call progress detection and logging, simple interface, ability to set NPA-NXX-YYYY parameters and control randomness and timing of calls. Thanks!
  8. "Doorbell? ... Doorbell... ... Doorbell? ... Doorbell..."
  9. Yup! Still going strong. I might be on myself at some point this weekend... I have some things to bounce off people and such.
  10. I believe that the Warner Robbins 1A is no longer there. Happened within the last few days, it seems. Someone I talked to on Twitter had recently found a sweeping frequency test on 478-923-3131, but now that's an NIS.
  11. It definitely goes off-hook, like it should to start... But you're right, the SS7 trunks probably make the rest of the test obsolete. I'm trying to think of a test number that would definitely be indicative of an electromechanical (or whatever you want to consider a 1A) switch, but wouldn't be present on whatever crap is there now.
  12. I have to wonder if the 0+ is significant in this case, as you're essentially asking for an operator assisted call to... An operator? An area code that is blocked off save for one number? I'd be curious about a 0+ to the actual GETS number, and see if it goes through (preferably from a payphone).
  13. Context for those that might not be familiar with the significance of the 710 area code: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Area_code_710
  14. Right. On top of Evan's recordings, I found a list of old 1xx codes (and noted that quite a few were inwards). So I might wind up revisiting the list with those 2 additional sources, and see how many more consistently pop up.
  15. I don't think it is... But I think I can find more. I'm going to look at the switches that were due to cut over this year, and mine for test numbers. Not sure when this'll start (it'll have to be soon), but I'll consider it my next project.
