Thanks very much.
We have tried a Nokia ECM Fast Class 1, but with problems with blank
lines in the middle of the fax text. When it encounters 3 or more blank
lines starts to send another page.
We came around that but reducing the quality of the sending fax and the
modem never hang up the call.
Our next try will be a Microcom DeskPort Fast 28.8.
