Depends on the distortions... ;-) "back in the day" I was able to 
whistle several different characters into my 300 baud modem. I was 
"bummed" that I could only get one pegged for my 1200 baud modem, and I 
tried, failed, and got really dizzy in the process ;-) trying to produce 
characters whistling into my 2400 baud modem.

I didn't have a Modem IB, tho - I had the little white CoCo specific 
300baud modem of the time (with the red bar-button); I can't remember 
the model # for it, tho.
