Touch-Tone dialing

35 points

And now for something old-school cool...

You'll need to download a small .wav file with a DTMF-encoded sequence inside. Play it back, you'll hear it. The task is simple: decode the sequence and send it back as the solution.

The sequence only uses the 0-9 digits as well as * and #.

Good luck!
