Notes on Overseas Dialing

  Overseas dialing is done in two stages of outpulsing.  The first stage routes
to an overseas sender and uses 011, which is the international access code for
International Direct Distance Dialing (IDDD) plus the paired country code.  If
the country code is two digits, the paired country code can be derived by adding
a "0" to the left of the country code.  Example:  The country code for England
is 44.	The paired country code would be 044.  First stage outpulsing for
England would then be:	KP-011044-ST.  If the country code contains three
digits, the paired country code cannot be derived in this way and must be looked
up.  Example:  The country code for Guam is 671.  The paired country code is
067.  First stage outpulsing for Guam would be KP-011067-ST.  Second example:
The country code for Cyprus is 357.  The paired country code is 087.  It is a
rule that a paired country code must never be the same as any counry code.

  About five seconds after the STart pulse, an international dial tone will be
heard.	This will time out to a reorder in about ten seconds.

  When the dial tone is heard, the system is ready to accept the second stage of
pulsing in the format:	KP-country code-city code-digits-ST.  At this stage it
is the country code not the paired country code which is used.

  Use the paired country codes when calling inward operators.

  Some toll offices are screened against 011 coming in on a long distance trunk.
In that case precede the 011 with the area code which would apply for that toll
office.  Example:  for a toll office in Gainsville, FL use KP-904+011+paired
CC-ST.

  Another way to reach the overseas senders is to call them directly with
KP-sender number-ST.  If this doesn't work add the area code of the sender.
Example:  KP-904185-ST.

  This is a list of international centers with their area codes.:

A/C  Sender   Location
---  ------   --------
914   182   White Plains, NY
212   183   New York, NY
412   184   Pittsburg, PA
904   185   Jacksonville, FL
415   186   Sacramento, CA
303   187   Denver, CO
212   188   New York (same sender as 183)

  The routing for a particular country can be found by dialing normally (pulse
or touch-tone) 011+CC+000+enough digits to add up to a total of seven inclucing
the country code.  Example:  011+44+00011.  You will get a recording.  At the
end of the recording, the area code of the international center will be given.
The sender used to call a particuar country can vary depending on the area of
the country from which the call is originated.	An international call can
sometimes be completed through the wrong sender, but this causes a print out
that will later be investigated to find out which CO it came from.  To find the
correct routing when pulsing through any particulat toll office use KP+paired
CC+000+ST.  For example, KP-011044000-ST would give the same result as dialing
normaly 011-44-00011 if you were dialing it in the area where the toll office is
located.

  The first digit of a country code is the world region in which that country is
located.  The world regions are:  1--North America, 2--Africa, 3 and 4--Europe,
5--South and Central America, 6--South Pacific, 7--Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics (U.S.S.R.), 8--Far East, 9--Middle East and South-East Asia.

  Note 1.  KP2 is not used in first or second stage outpulsing when calling any
country in the IDDD network.

  Note 2.  Public telephones are interfaced to TSPS (Traffic Service Position
System).  If you call an 800 number and whistle off using 2600 Hz, the distant
toll office sends a wink back signal (a short on-hook) indicating it is ready
to receive pulsing.  TSPS responds to this wink back by printing out the
original number called, the number called from, and the number MFed after the
wink back.  This print out goes to the billing and security departments.


PAIRED COUNTRY CODES

  This is a list of paired country codes for use in first stage outpulsing on
overseas calls.  For two digit country codes simply add a zero.  Example:  The
country code for England is 44.  The paired country code is 044.  Paired country
codes that cannot be derived by this simple method are listed below.

  Notes:  The Marisat codes are used when calling ships directly.  Single stage
outpulsing is used for calls to Mexico in this format:	KP-180-City
Code-digits-ST.  To call an inward operator in Mexico use KP-190-City
Code-09-ST.  For directory assistance use KP-190-City Code-01-ST.
