Is there a list of all possible Rauland Telecenter ICS tones you can choose? I'm talking about the ones where you can dial #3[tone]* and it plays that tone selected over the intercom.
I recently got a hold of all the Rauland Telecenter ICS and ICS2 tones in .wav format. There are 9 Time Tones and I believe 15 general purpose and alarm tones.
Interested?

It’s used for Lockdowns and Severe Weathers mainly, sometimes they use it to test the system.

Can anyone identify this paging tone that I sometimes hear at my local Rite Aid, tried my best to match the tone and frequency as possible. For the record, they use generic phones on the front counters to page.
