I'm assuming that means 255 total userbase, not 255 callers at once. ;)

The BOT Pocket MODEM is what Spectraview-I used. A cable Co. office could dial up the head end at the towers and dishes and edit the text on the Atari that displays their current events, channel list, weather, etc.

 

*Very* electrostatic sensitive. I had many of these come back as defective after lightning strikes and storms.

 

They will go up to 450 baud, IIRC.

 

Nice little modem.

Funny... I found the software via google and didnt even remember the mention here.. i’m Getting old, and i drink too much beer. :) 

 

doesnt look like anything terribly special - but what a gem to find another (to me) completely unknown bbs software for the 8bit.. leaves me feeling like I always have - that there is plenty left to be found in the way of BBS/term/hacking/phreaking/diskxfer type apps as lots of it was regional...
