moose call ==>
The peculiar clicking and whooshing sounds made by a PEP modem such as the
Telebit Trailblazer as it tries to synchronise with another PEP modem for their
special high-speed mode. This sound isn't anything like the normal two-tone
handshake between conventional modems and is instantly recognizable to anyone
who has heard it more than once. It sounds, in fact, very much like whale songs.
This noise is also called "the moose call" or "moose tones".
