Sorry, John, but you are *wrong*.

You, "the person" sending the fax are *still* required to place the
identification information at the top/bottom of every page, or on the
first page.

You are correct that _equipment_ manufactured before 20 Dec 1992 does
not have to do this 'automatically', HOWEVER, just because you are
using such equipment you are _not_ exempt from the requirement of 47
USC 227 (d) (1).
