Telebit Corporation           Revision 3.00                  17 OCT 1988
This offer has been posted previously to the USENET. However, note that 
the offer has been extended until December 31, 1988. Feel free to contact us 
if you have any questions or wish to place an order.  Please send to the 
path noted in the announcement below if you wish to order via email.

Telebit Corporation has demonstrated a precedent for extending this program
on a quarterly basis.  It is only fair that we stress our intention to
terminate this program, in all seriousness, at the end of December, 1988.

Available through normal Telebit distribution channels is a new product,
the T1000, which operates complete with UUCP support at 9600 bps uncompressed.
This product retails at $795.00.  Following December 31, 1988 both 
TrailBlazer Plus and T1000 shoppers will be directed to a local distributor.
The T1000 is not available at any time through this USENET DISCOUNT PROGRAM.

******************     TELEBIT USENET/UUCP PROGRAM     **********************
Telebit Corporation is offering a special 50% promotional discount off the
TrailBlazer Plus modem to mapped USENET/UUCP sites. This offer is available 
until December 31, 1988. 

With Telebit's newest release of firmware (V4.00) supporting the UUCP protocol,
USENET sites can now take full advantage of the high speed dial-up capabilities
of the TrailBlazer with error free file transfer "throughputs" as high as 
16,000 bps (18,000bps modem to modem burst rates).


In order to participate in the Telebit USENET/UUCP modem purchase program
your site must be located in one of the 50 United States or Canada, and 
your site must be registered in the USENET/UUCP maps. If you have multiple 
sites, you may purchase modems for a maximum of two (2) sites, with a total
limit of four (4) modems per organization. 

PTT restrictions and distribution contracts prohibit Telebit from directly
selling modems outside the United States.  International users are encouraged
to contact Telebit for local distributor information.  A similar 
program may be offered through local distribution on a per country, per
demand basis.


The Telebit TrailBlazer is the most advanced dial-up communications technology
on the market today.  TrailBlazer offers compatibility at 300, 1200 (V.22 and 
Bell 212), and 2400 bps.  In high speed (PEP mode), the TrailBlazer can operate
at 18,000 bps on ordinary dial-up phone lines, (over 16,000 bps throughput).  
TrailBlazer's patented multicarrier technology dynamically adapts to phone line
quality and delivers the highest throughput possible for each individual line.
In August 1987, Telebit announced enhanced features that are designed to 
allow the TrailBlazer to work optimally with UUCP, Kermit, XMODEM, and YMODEM 

In addition, the modem may be configured, by use of an S register, to perform
the compress/decompress algorithms (based on Unix's 4.0 compress) in real
time, WITHIN the modem.

The TrailBlazer is the first and only high speed dial-up modem that supports
unmodified Unix UUCP "g" protocol with acceptable throughput.  This UUCP
protocol support allows the TrailBlazer to provide significant savings on long
distance telephone charges associated with large file transfers within USENET.

It's now feaasible to move large amounts of data by dialup modem.  Applications
that may have been unreasonable at 1200 or 2400 bps become feasible with 
transfer rates up to 16,000 bps throughput.

promotional price.  A maximum of four (4) modems may be purchased by any 
organization (that is, two sites per organization are the limit).

Delivery is 30 days ARO.
