You don't hear that mobile phone interference noise that much any more do you? (banal)

You know, the morse codey sounding one

This thread is brought to you by the fact I heard the old landline modem connecting sound earlier for the first time in years

It was always a giveaway at my first job (where we weren’t allowed our phones at our desks) - you could hear the sound of an incoming text message on a phone line.

Only recently realised that it actually is morse code - for SMS - which blew my mind a little bit.

I heard it last night interacting with a guitar pedal signal!

no way.
