<h1>SDF Dialup Membership</h1>
<h2>What is DIALUP Membership?</h2>
<p>Best way to learn about the <i>DIALUP</i> SDF membership is to login to your
SDF shell account and enter <b>dialup</b>:
<pre>
you@sdf: dialup
SDF provides analogue and digital (ISDN) DIALUP service to members.
To get a list of numbers in your area, use 'getdialup'.
Some quick tips and things to note:
1) You can choose from 54,143 dialup numbers in the USA & Canada
2) Connections from 1200bps to 52000bps or 64kbps to 128kbps ISDN
3) Read the bboard:<DIALUP> for discussions on the membership
4) Your dialup login is you@tenex.org
5) use 'setdialup' to maintain your DIALUP login and SMTP AUTH password
6) Pay your dues via paypal or mail (type 'address' for more details)
Dues are: $10/mo, $27/qtr, $48/semi and $84/year and
membership is open to all validated members, no setup fee, a
monthly average of 15 hours a day, no dialer, no adverts! Enjoy!

<p>The SDF>DIALUP FAQ and <a href="http://dialup.tenex.org/">dialup.tenex.org</a> have additional information.
Before you sign-up though you may want to run <b>getdialup</b> first to see what numbers are in your
local/extended <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_telephone_service"> calling area</a>.
Usually this information is contained in your local telephone directory.
<p>example: list all (503) access numbers in the Portland, OR area
<pre>
you@sdf: getdialup 503 | grep Portland
(503) 258-7011 Portland OR pi PacWest
(503) 258-7023 Portland OR pi PacWest
(503) 548-0317 Portland OR pi PacWest

<p>Users in rural areas may find no local access numbers and would need to weigh the cost
of long distance charges.
