MichTron states that Fast FAX's command functions permit letterheads, signatures, cover pages, or any other saved graphics, to be inserted into FAX documents. A view option allows an incoming FAX to be displayed on screen (within a scrollable window) or to generate a printout. Fast FAX's software includes a phone book that can store over 1000 company names, contact names and their FAX phone numbers. A scheduling feature provides the ability to send multiple FAXes to multiple locations, and Fast FAX can be told when to send them. FAXes can be set up to be sent any time of the day, any day of the moth, and any month of the year. The Fast FAX modem uses its own 8 MHz 68000 microprocessor, has 32K of RAM, and 64K of ROM. Data rates supported include: V.29 (9600bps, 7200bps), V.27 (4800bps, 2400bps) and V.21 (channel 2 at 300bps) with automatic fallback. Fast FAX has a suggested list price of $699.95 and is available for Amiga, Atari ST and IBM PC computers. For additional information, contact MichTRON, Inc., 576 S.
