It's called the Answercall 100, it costs £86.25, and to judge from its spec it's the kind of unit that bulletin boards thrive on. The manufacturer, also called Answercall (which it does, on 01-659 1133), has BABT approval for the device which will be distributed by DLE communications. The Answercall 100 is a 300 baud unit with LEDs to indicate Power On and Carrier Detect, and with switches for On/Off, Answer, and Originate.
