This corei64 folk produce custom 3D printed items, many of them are cases for small cards like the WiModem(s). Below is the link and some pictures of mine.
Here is the case and little Allen wrench you use to open and put back together the case.
Here is the case in action. I put a piece of paper over the light to reduce the glow for the picture. YELLOW light ready; GREEN light connected.

I had an issue connecting to bbs.impakt.net but thanks to Mike Whalen’s article in Juice.GS March issue it is resolved.
As it turns out a few BBSs front end their systems with code to make sure you’re not a bot. DJs Place above is one of those.
To handle this you need to enter the AT*T1 telnet command at some point before dialing. Below you’ll see the series of screen shots I go through as it takes a few steps. First go to Online mode via Apple or Option-T and issue the AT*T1 command. Then go offline the same way. You’re now at this screen (I’d already issued the command earlier).
Now, go to your stored entry and select the BBS like Impakt BBS.
Your dialing screen will pop up, you click on dial.
In my case it actually does connect. You can see it on the OLED. But ProTERM doesn’t think so. And the screen says your still OFFLINE. Cancel out of those two screens.
Enter Apple or Option-T to go back ONLINE. Hit the enter key and you’ll get the screen below. Then you’re on your way.
There may be a faster way, like entering the BBS name from the command line itself. I’ll have to play with that.

These 90°, 270° adapters came in very handy on the smaller LCDs since the cables connect to the bottom of the LCD.
