Looks like a Datamaster, but I don't think it is. Datamaster was 5322, FWIW.

I looked further down the page and he is talking a lot of nonsense. Like the
early Hayes modem, transmitting at 300k (k what? k millibaud?), as compared
with modern modems transmitting at 5,600k (k what? 56 kilobaud seems to be
fairly standard now...)
