 I dunno if I have bad terminal settings or what, but 1, 2, 4, 7 and 8 all respond with "INPUT NOT ACCEPTED; RE-ENTER:". The other numbers wait for four digits (it still won't accept 1, 2, 4, 7, and 8) before giving me the same thing. I can't remember where exactly, but there's another Iowa Telecom exchange with that same old AIS that has the exact same issue. So when I did a search and found this, I just sorta assumed at the time it was broken or something.

I was able to dial this system and it is accepting my input.  I'm using 'HyperTerminal Personal' 7 E 1 /1200baud.  Just poking around the display trunk options.  Interesting.......

515-733-4769 appears to be a black&decker store, 800-544-6986 is the black and decker 800 number - are these some sort of forwards?  Like they closed the store and forwarded that number to the 800?  Edit: they do seem to be some sort of forwards, for example, 515-733-2244 used to be Shadlow Financial, but then they were acquired and the new # is 733-5113 which is Edward Jones. NEW EDIT: OK this is the thing that facilitates saying 'the number has been changed' and reading out the new number

Update: the SXS "table" is completely blank

Taking ThoughtPhreaker's advice to scan the Bremen 537 prefix, here are some random modems, albeit probably just faxes. I haven't tried to terminal into these.

Nice work! I was actually using Hyper Terminal myself. I think the AIS took issue with the cheap Connexant softmodem I was using. I tried it again on a USR Courier with Minicom, and it works fine. Here's another one, by the way; 319-444-1244. This one has way more changed number intercept entries and non-working numbers get sent to it by default, so I was expecting to hear a lot more of these. The few I tried all went to some generic non-working number recording on it, though. There is a way in the original AIS MF protocol to tell it to not look up a number though, and just tell the caller it's disconnected. Chances are, the switch is just sending that.

The SXS table is blank as well. The AIS is old enough (there's a recording on Phonetrips of a switch being installed with one of these in 1987. Odds are good it's still there, and neither the code for ANAC or the EDRAM recordings have changed) that it was probably a selling point for these to be able to talk to a common control step by step switch in some way, since tiny independent companies loved them. So that might be what that is.

Since this is the some numbers thread though, here's a numbers. 800-255-0040 - "Welcome to the Amhest ANI check. Please enter your passcode."

the RTTY software MMTTY can be easily configured to generate and receive TDD-format data

Would you mind telling us the settings to let MMTTY decode TDD data/tones?

 

I've been trying to access TDD numbers using HyperTerminal for example and it doesn't work.

Me and TP tried to figure out how to decode them using MMTTY with the demodulator set to PLL and these settings:

Mark: 1400 Hz / Shift: 400 Hz / VCO: 3.0 / Loop: 300 Hz

yet it doesn't work.

I guess since these "modem" sounds didn't connect in TBA I should have expected the same on a terminal. Oh well, I'll return if I do discover anything worthwhile.

ramsaso- the settings you gave plus the following:

Baud: 45.45
Bit length: 5bit
Stop length: 1 (or "Rx=1bit Tx=1.5bit" not sure what the difference between that and straight 1-bit is though)
Parity: NONE

50 baud is also infrequently used but that's pretty nonstandard. The majority of TDDs use Baudot code at 45.45 baud 5N1. If you try decoding at 50 and only get garbage text then try decoding at 45.45. Set "BAUDOT Codeset" to S-BELL if it already isn't. If it's set to J-BELL you will need to change it since that is a nonstandard encoding to facilitate Japanese RTTY. If that still doesn't work check that the clock rate is set at 11025 (at least I can't get MMTTY to behave itself at 12000, 8000 or 6000, YRMV)


EDIT: Here are a couple of audio files you can use to test it:
http://mistman.pdp10.org/pub/users/scratchytcarrier/listNPA_251-.mp3
http://mistman.pdp10.org/pub/users/scratchytcarrier/ac620test.mp3

You will need to convert them to 11025Hz 16-bit mono PCM if you want to open them directly using MMTTY.


IIRC Hyperterminal can not generate and interpret Baudot TTY so it can't be used for TDD unless they are using 8N1 ANSI format. Several years ago I found a program that can run Baudot with a standard modem but I forget what it was called. If you call your local 711 with Hypertermanal and your computer ignores the TDD chirps but answers the carrier tone, you're using ANSI.

Odd, it's still garbled text.

Would you mind making a screenshot of MMTTY in action?

I followed all the steps correctly and (look at the screenshot). I called 711. 

But when I call 713 837 0311 (it's city information for Houston), it decodes it somewhat successfully.

What kind of setup are you using to interface to the fone line, do you have some sort of acoustic coupler thing connected to your microphone input/headhone output or do you have one of those type of modems that can be wired directly to the sound card?

 

 

Decoding. The garbage before REDIAL is it interpreting Pat Fleet's talking.

Looks like all of those except for 5130 are faxes. Unfortunately, the hotel that owns 5130 had the bright idea of moving to some transcoded voip connection. Expect some pretty patchy connectivity. Try listening to 217-234-9902; notice how after the 2100 hertz tone, the rest of the handshake sounds significantly different from a fax.

 

With the shutdown of all the free ITL services, I decided to look around and see what was still in their exchange. Surprisingly, they still have some Laser boxes:

206-424-6245

206-312-6245

 

And then there's this: 206-312-0000.

Thanks for the reply, I did want to say that TBA made a successful found carrier to 770-537-5257 yet once again no terminal software I used detected that number as a carrier.

Over the weekend, I did a huge backspoof of a DCO to get some stuff for the switch article I'm writing. As most backspoofs seem to go, this one wasn't particularly successful; for some reason, there was a ton of milliwatt generators on analog lines for whatever reason. Could be there's something more to them - like a loop. For whatever it's worth, they don't seem to wait around a while; they'll just disconnect after several (or just a few, depending on the number) seconds. Anyway, here's the numbers that weren't ringouts;

 

512-295

2021 - Forward to 711

2414 - Mlliwatt generator on analog line

2497 - Ring x2 to loud bitrob noise

2526 - Thingie on analog line? Answers quickly, supes, stays busy for several minutes

2874 - Mlliwatt generator on analog line
2877 - Mlliwatt generator on analog line

2983 - Mlliwatt generator on analog line

3051 - Mlliwatt generator on analog line

3714 - Cognitronics rec, "We're sorry, the party is not accepting your call at this time."
3751 - Milliwatt generator on analog line

4394 - 1200 baud modem

5275 - Cognitronics rec, "We're sorry, the party is not accepting your call at this time."

5914 - Modem
CONNECT

ENTER CELL PASSWORD

8984 - 1200 baud modem

9938 - Millwatt generator on analog line

 

Also, 832-553-9187 picks up with some sort of modulated beep. Anybody know what this is?

Is it an inter box or one of those inductive pickup things that you clip onto the cord? If its the latter then it could be the problem (not getting a high enough signal level to properly decode and it's getting lost in the sound card's self-noise). Could also be your sound card's timing is weird and causing decode errors, you can go into IIRC "Misc" in the configuration and set it to a lower or higher sampling frequency if you need to.

I have actually thought of trying it through a network of inter boxes i.e. one on the headphone out (transmitting) and the microphone (receiving) with the two connected together on Ma Bell's end. I have not actualy implemented it yet on this sound card (previously only through a laptop) and have no idea what sort of feedback loop it would generate. I suppose in the best case it would echo what I send in the receive area, serving as a local loopback of sorts.

Yeah those are the inter boxes I use too. Strange though that it's having that much trouble decoding. Is there much hum or buzz when you monitor it on headphones? because these units are notorious for picking up noise inductively from nearby electronics or electrical lines. Especially when the SINGLE/MULTI switch is on MULTI. I have also found them to give a slightly higher signal-noise ratio by connecting the phone line to the "Telephone" socket on top then connect the telephone to its cord. Not sure why it would make a difference (maybe my own cord is of higher quality?) but it seems to.

MMTTY seems to be pretty fussy about noise and will attempt to decode _everything_ it hears as text, even computer self-noise.

So today I decided to take a poke at the 5ESS in Denver's main Centurylink building. As per usual with ex-US West switches, plenty of recordings, but some towards the end are particularly hair raising. I dunno if that makes up for the effort of transcribing word for word all these long-winded queue recordings for state agencies :P .

406-293-0013 - This looks to be some sort of DISA for Frontier's customer service IVRs; TellMe has something very much like this running on AT&T's 5ESS toll tandems (866-283-5563 if you want to compare) - this is probably the same arrangement. Anyway, 000 on the Frontier one goes to a Y2K recording, probably on the AT&T network.

A brief musing about numbers that "beep":

As I was recently helping Mistman clearing out his late grandmother's estate I came across an old VCR tape of a partial KATU news broadcast that she had recorded around '91 or so. In the days before the World Wide Web killed such things off, KATU had an telephone-based opinion polling system in use around that time called "Telepoll", basically the idea is they would display a slide showing the big hot-button topic of the night (e.g. "Should strippers who are abducted by UFOs be forced into weight-loss programs") then another slide gave a list of numbers to call to register your choice. I think they had a bank of maybe 4 or 5 different numbers but I remember rarely seeing any beyond one number for "yes" and another for "no". Paul Linnman would then instruct the viewer to call the particular number then "when you hear the electronic beep" it means your vote has been counted. I do recall playing with the system as a teenager and it semeed to be up all day (so you could call a number at say noon and vote for nothing, basically) and the system didn't respond to DTMF.

So that's one thing to consider. If you're scanning/janning around an exchange and hit a number that just beeps once and doesn't respond to anything, and isn't a miliwatt (I think the KATU tone was somewhere around 500 Hz or so) it's possible that you've hit a maybe forgotten-about TV/radio station polling system that's still accepting votes for whatever big controversy was hot the last time anybody thought to use it.

Oh yeah, about that KATU thing: The numbers were sequential in one of the 503-73x exchanges. I think they were 1001-1005 or something. The exchange might have been 737. It's been years decades since I've seen it and the taped broadcast cut to an episode of "The Nest Generation" from KPTV just as the topic slide was about to display.

Maybe. My experience scanning has been that those things typically live on toll tandems for whatever reason (designed to take a huge burst of traffic, maybe?). You'll see in that MCI thread for example though, there's a "thanks for voting" recording stuck on a DEX. The 4ESS definitely has support built into it for this very thing; assuming the show is still a thing, American Idol uses it.

 

360-652-9958 - ACTS phone in a booth at a rest stop in Arlington, Washington. This phone really pulled the rug out from under my feet; if you flash, the switch will stop what it's doing, and put you on silence for...maybe forever. The DMS-10s I've used go to permanent signal when you do this, so when you combine that with the APMax in this office, well, it came as a huge surprise when I learned this is on a 5ESS. It's on some sort of weird linecard too; not the quintessential 5ESS card with the loud relays and weird frequency response. Oh, yeah, and if you try dialing a 710 number from the phone, it'll stay silent for a while, and drop you back to dialtone. Basically, it's like a switch wearing Groucho Marx glasses. Anyway, the phone rings.

9952 - Weird noises. Broken trunk?

<snip!>

 

I want to say that one (at the very least) is a "broken" recording. CBCAD or YCDNGT, something of the sort. There's a pattern to the noise, it repeats 3 times with brief pauses in between, and it dumps the line after the last repetition.

 

I might research further.

I might research further.

 

For what it's worth, there was another DMS-10 (503-621) doing that when I first moved to Portland. About a few months later, it returned to giving normal announcements from a Cognitronics announcement machine of some kind.

 

Anyway, so after a little bit of investigating, I think I've got a pretty good grasp on where Canadian exchanges like to keep their test numbers.

 

204-244

 

1147 - rec, "We are unable to complete your call as dialed. If you are dialing long distance, please dial the access digit 1 first. This is a recording"

1146 - YCDNGT rec

1145 - rec, "We're sorry, your call cannot be completed as dialed. You must dial all seven digits to complete your call. Please hang up and t-"

1142 - rec, "911 service is not available in this community. Please dial the service you want directly, or call the operator for assistance."

 

The rest of that particular exchange looked a little vacant. Then again though, this particular one is waaaaaaay out in the middle of nowhere - like, the CO doesn't even have an address; it just has coordinates.
