::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 TestSet Johnny::

A solid overview of the 959 "test" exchange is covered quite well in the
classic text file: "The AT&T 959 Exchange", which can be found in the
Telephony Text Files section of my WebPage.

In my experience (albeit limited) most 959 numbers are the same or similar
in various NPA's, but there are occasional differences.  I was originally
going to just compile all of the data below into a "general" 959 listing,
but thought better of it at the last moment.  About the only real thing you
need to keep in mind with these is that you must dial into a 959 exchange
via AT&T.

Anybody out there who has scanned any 959 exchanges and would care to
share the results, please feel free to contact me (see above or below for
address).  Speaking of which; thanks goes to MMX for the recent info.

::Notes from MMX::

By the way - I found another use for non working 959 numbers.  When you dial
an invalid 959 number (as in - one that doesn't work), it'll give you it's
tandem ID number.  For example - the White Plains, NY AT&T Domestic and
International 4E (an immensely large building with no windows, a full time
security guard and a dumpster inside a double fence with barbed wire) will
say 1-0-4-T after every recording that only made it to that point.  So - for
all future scanning, if it doesn't say 1-0-4-T, you know that it's getting
beyond your local toll office or being handed over to another network.
