(additions and/or corrections welcomed, E-Mail: testset@iname.com) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> last update: 09/21/99 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ............................................................................. ::Abbreviations:: These are the rather cryptic abbreviations & terms I've been using in my own notes for many years now. Feel free to learn them, use them, & love them. ACB - All Circuits Busy (recording) AM - Answering Machine ANAC - Automatic Number Announcement Circuit ATMS - Automated Trunk Maintenance/Measurement System (how she works is beyond me) CBC - Cannot Be Completed (recording) CFT - Checked For Trouble (recording) CS - Customer Service/Support DGT - Didn't Go Through (recording) DHC - Due to Heavy Calling (recording) DIS - DISconnected (recording) HBC - Has Been Changed (recording) LD - Long Distance (like I needed to tell you) MBX - MailBoX NIS - Not In Service (recording) NIV - Number InValid (recording) NPA - Numbering Plan Area (area code to everybody else) OGM - Out Going Message PA - Person Answered PBX - Private Branch eXchange REC - RECording RO - Ring Out (just keeps ringing) VMS - Voice Mail/Message System YCA - cannot be reached from Your Calling Area (recording) ::Glossary:: dialtone - usually indicates a PBX or LD service reflector - number that delays & resends received audio, ie: echo (exactly why, I don't know) reorder - fast busy signal ring busy - number that's always busy suped - toll call tone - so called "milliwatt tone" or "loop tone" (various durations) unsuped - free call (most intercept recordings are unsuped) ............................................................................. ::Notes from e5:: One of the most popular Telco test ranges is XXX-99XX. Many interesting numbers are found in this range, even in residential prefixes. The following is another small scan of the Austin area, 512-836-99XX, 836 being a prefix used for residential numbers. I have scanned only about one half of the prefix, as shown by the numerous gaps. "Residential number" means just that; either a person or an answering machine was encountered. Although not as interesting as 512-485, this prefix indeed hides a few telco test numbers. ::Notes from TestSet Johnny:: Again, my thanks go to e5 for this scan. ............................................................................. ::Numbers:: (512)836- 0099 - loud tone, like loop 9900 - tone 9901 - "incoming calls restricted", tone (see 836-9948) 9902 - several rings, tone 9903 - DIS 9904 - ring out 9905 - ring out 9906 - rings, tone 9907 - rings, tone 9908 - "We're sorry 836-9908 is not equipped to recieve calls, repeating ..." 9909 - ring out 9910 - "We're sorry 836-9910 is not equipped to recieve calls, repeating ..." 9911 - rings, odd sound, tone 9912 - rings, 9917 - DIS 9919 - residential number 9921 - several rings, tone 9923 - busy 9925 - "We're sorry 836-9925 is not equpped to recieve calls, repeating ..." 9930 - DIS 9931 - several rings, tone 9933 - several rings, tone 9940 - DIS 9941 - DIS 9948 - "incoming calls restricted", tone 9949 - DIS 9950 - DIS 9955 - DIS 9958 - CBC 9966 - DIS 9967 - several rings, odd sustaining MF tone 9968 - several rings, tone 9978 - "We're sorry 836-9978 is not a working number, please consult your directory and dial again, repeating, ..." 9979 - several rings, odd sound, tone 9981 - residential number 9998 - several rings, odd tone 9999 - loud tone, like loop
