(Yes, the ending dash is supposed to be there.)
A Blue Box design that emulates classic Blue Box tones, plus 12 other historical tone modes. It produces 12 tone signalling systems used by phone phreaks to hack other more exotic system in the US and overseas, including early pre-cellular mobile telephone systems from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, including the classic bluebox and the DTMF suite. 12 memories of up to 32 tone sequences each. Sine waves from PWM.
Maybe make myself a con badge out of it?
The original homepage of IFJ. Maybe I can find someplace that still sells their stuff?
An archive of phreak programs for Atari, Commodore, Tandy and more.
A group of telephony hobbyists who restore and maintain old equipment. They figure out how to get their gear VoIP-enabled and built their own PSTN on top of the Net by hooking everything together. It's pretty serious, plus they document their work pretty well.
Homepage of the PLA. Fun stuff, here!
An archive of recordings from the early days of phone phreaking- stuff like conversations recorded off of bridges, tone sequences, war stories, stuff like that.
Phantom Access: Possibly the first icebreaker in history, written by Lord Digital of the Legion of Doom back in the 1980's. This is a real piece of history, folks... you can't use it for anything these days, but it demonstrates nicely how things used to be.
Introduced at The Last HOPE, this online project is a recreation of yesteryear using open source software. Phiber Optik used a modified build of Asterisk to build a virtual telephone network that you can hack around with using a blue box (or a software emulation thereof). It's completely isolated and completely legal, and was built for those of us who got into phreaking after electromechanical switching disappeared. If you want, you can set your own instance up by downloading the patches for the software.
