Hi, does anybody use these for anything anymore? Same question ref. Backpack CD Re Writer.  Before I throw away, just wondering.  Maybe I should have thrown out 20 yrs ago??   HI  I'm not into comp bldg, etc. and hate to think my junk might be somebody elses treasure. Then agn, I've been to some ham fleas where numerous boat ancors would be somebody's nightmare.   Cheers,  Steve, K1PEK

Check eBay.  Seems like there's a visibly used Hayes Smartmodem 2400 going for $75.00 there, and that user has "2 sold" listed.

Who knows what people are using them for?  Maybe some industrial system that they don't want to update?

the 300-baud modulation is Bell-103, which is used for HF packet.  But its way too much effort compared to starting flex32 on your soundcard.

The other common use for low-speed modems these days is credit card and other fast-response terminals, because the channel is up the moment it hears the other end's carrier tone, rather than after a 15-second negotiation sequence.

It would make a handsome paperweight in any shack.
