Yeah it's a type III (ascom voo:doo) but the reason it's in pieces
right now is because I was modifying it to fit in my laptop's type II
slot. (by moving the radio tin outside) So I need to finish it up

Your other option sounds good as well, I have a gigaset (model no.
escapes me at the moment but it's a fairly recent one) at home and I
could give you access to my laptop but I'm in the middle of moving so
that'll be in February at it's soonest.

I'll email you when I get a chance to set it up for you.
