Correct. It's an Intel / Ambient "HaM" winmodem. FYI, there is an
open-source driver at linmodems.org, in addition to the binary one.
Info inside my winmodems rant:
(I _think_ the driver at linmodems.org is open-source. It's been years

into thinking an open-source wrapper around a binary core library was
real open source. So, check and see, if that matters.)
