Given that we can use 56K (bits, not bytes) modems...could this be
recorded on a shellac disc, given the inherent signal-to-noise ratio?
It could probably be done on vinyl...but are there any lifespan
considerations for vinyl discs?
In the 1920s Video signals were recorded on shellac discs using a modulated
tone similar to the way the cassette tape data recorders for early PCs worked.
I don't see why a modem signal that can pass through a voice telephone line
couldn't be recorded on any audio medium, though it might have to have better
speed regulation than most analog machines do.
