March 2018 eBay Roundup

Like everyone says every time we do one of these, it's been a while! Show us your tastes in shameless materialism! :D

 

$30 PCIE quad T1/E1 Dialogic DM3 card

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dialogic-Digital-Fax-Board-T1-E1-PCIe-DMV1200BTEPEQ-DMV1200BTEPJP-Telephony/282838946135?epid=1922689281&hash=item41da83d157:g:IAYAAOSwR21ZwpAK

 

These are really nice cards for a number of reasons. The one holdback is you really need to know C to make them worth your while. If you have anything that speaks T1 and can stomach a bit of programming though, they are very much worth it. I'm running a similar model that routinely gets at least a couple hours of use every day.

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cisco-IAD2431-SPIAD2431-1T1E1-V03-2-Port-10-100-Wired-Router-IAD2431-1T1E1/263503336710?epid=99404097&hash=item3d5a05d506:g:KFIAAOSwaMhZwtZb

 

Cisco IAD2431-1T1E1 router. You can't beat a Meridian or Definity for home use - there's no getting around that, but these are surprisingly flexible for a home network if you can tolerate the Cisco CLI, have a channel bank to use some analog lines with, and don't have enough room for a larger PBX like the aforementioned ones (and don't want to write a switch program to work with the card I just linked; they have GR-303 stacks). These particular models do TDM hairpinning as well, so the call is end to end circuit switched when there's no DSP involvement. There's really cheap VIC modules for FXO, ISDN BRI (though it won't do data calls), FXS (I'd recommend the channel bank though; I like it better than the Cisco analog stuff), etc lying around as well to make it interface with whatever you have. Just beware; it does have IVR capabilities, but they kinda suck.

Adit 600 channel bank. Cheap as they come, and as good as they get for home POTS stuff. They also do weird things like ISDN BRI if you can find the cards for them.

 

8434DX phone for the Definity. The VFD tends to be indescribably awesome on these, and on the later phones (post-1997 or so; look for any without the AT&T logo), have off the shelf Noritake VFDs you can get for cheap to swap them with. Especially nice if you get stuck with a set that has a worn VFD.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Telos-Zephyr-ISDN-Codec-9202-Layer-III-II/232683424480?hash=item362d034ae0:g:TS0AAOSwjY1aixyk

 

Telos Zephyr; ISDN MP2/MP3 audio transceiver. These are buckets of fun if you have access to one; most radio stations and recording studios have compatible models you can connect to and get really nice sounding feeds of their mixing consoles from. Also, http://wpr.org/isdn/ . The newer Xstream models tend to answer automatically for normal phone calls and patch you into their audio input instead of deny them as these do.

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/TASCAM-DR-07-Portable-Digital-Recorder-W-SD-Card/112853473299?epid=99407338&hash=item1a46975813:g:cDAAAOSwHM1any6e

 

Tascam DR-07; these are flash based field recorders. I've been using one for about eight years, and can attest to them being a great way to record your, er, mishaps on the PSTN, among other things. Also, they tend to not break.

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Meridian-NTFX00-M5317-ISDN-Office-Phone-Business-Telephone-FREE-SHIPPING/281650822675?hash=item4193b27e13:g:pJMAAOSwqu9VHZ9O

 

Nortel ISDN BRI phone.
