    For my Asterisk/FreePBX setup at home, I now have two ATAs which support 
pulse dialing: a Grandstream HT502 and a UTStarcom iAN-02EX (circa 2004). 
The HT502 doesn't always pick up the correct number of pulses, but the 
UTStarcom does every time.  The only thing I don't like about the UTStarcom is 
that it doesn't do SIP correctly so I had to configure for MGCP.  It's also 
very difficult to find firmware for it.

    The HT502 rings the rotary phone louder, which doesn't make sense since it 
has a 3 REN versus the iAN-EX02's 5 REN.
