In North America the caller ID data is transmitted using the *old standard*
Bell 202 [asynchronous 1200 baud FSK] modem transmitter.
Offhand, I don't know the data encoding format, I suspect that it is ASCII,
but who knows. Heh, heh... since they unabashedly plagiarized the modem
technology from the Bell 202 modem, they may have had a relapse and got a
case of NIH when they came up with the data encoding.??? Out East here,
BellSouth actually has created and market a service ["Caller ID Deluxe"]
that will supply the name, and address information of the caller as well as
the calling number. They look up the user data in their AIN SCP data bases.
I am sure that Telcordia Technologies [aka Bellcore] has a complete *spec*
on all of this regular CID stuff for sale. Check their WWW site.
