Seeking docs and schematic for Novation CAT modem

Fri Sep 23 11:47:46 CDT 2016

Joe -   is that   the  direct connect one of  the  acoustic  coupler? I   
any event  SMECC   would  love a  copy  to  for our  files at the museum  
A side issue  there  was a Novation coupler - modem... a white  one  that 
the  phone would sit on.  with coupler cups to the  side. Does anyone have 
any photos, advertising,  etc etc... on this ?
Thanks  Ed #  _www.smecc.org_ (

I have the manual for a  103/212 smart cat modem. PN 490418-1/490521-1. 
Circa 1982

Is that  what you need?
