Operation of old modems

I just picked up an old BellSouth 212A modem, and don't know how to make
it go. It has a handful of pushbuttons on the front (AL ST RL DL HS TLK),
and doesn't respond to the Hayes command set. Am I supposed to dial the
phone myself, and then tell the modem to wake up when I hear the carrier,
like with the old acoustic modems? Any ideas on what those abbreviations
are? I'm guessing HS = "high speed", probably meaning 1200 baud. :-)
And TLK must be "talk". The others have me stumped. Maybe AL is "analog

Hints would be appreciated.
