Nope, I'm referring to a plain old Novation CAT 300 baud acoustic coupled
modem. I saved it from the trash heap a few years ago because I was going
on travel somewhere that I knew A) I would have to do some remote access
from my hotel room and 2) the hotel room didn't have modular jacks. It was
the only acoustic coupler I could find and worked great. I haven't had
the heart to toss it out since.

BTW, this would have been about '92 that I was using 300 baud modems from
hotel rooms...
