Deputies say customers of Verizon Wireless are receiving text messages telling them to open a link to correct a security breach. We are told it is more than likely a phishing method that allows the sender to retrieve data from customers. http://www.abc10.com/tech/verizon-wireless-customers-shouldnt-fall-for-this-scam/356177442 -- Bill Horne Moderator ------------------------------ Message-ID: <CAFrGgTTDTKWEOc4kO553rFLXrM4fO-ueLqW7nJ +p0dYkusmp8A@mail.gmail.com> Date: Sun, 27 Nov 2016 16:14:34 -0700 From: Eric Smith <spacewar@gmail.com> Subject: Bell 401 datasets Does anyone have technical information on Bell 401 datasets, such as the 401H and 401L transmitters, and the 401F and 401J receivers? In particular, I'm interested in what frequencies, signal levels, timing, and tolerances were used. The 401 series used multifrequency signaling, with up to three simultaneous tones out of eleven choices in three bands. Since they were for customer use, I assume that they were chosen to not conflict with in-band MF signaling.
