DTMF - Dual Tone Multi Frequncies. Used on telephone keypads to send tones based on the depressed key. An individual frequency is associated with each row of the keypad - 3 rows down and 4 rows across. If the number 2 is pressed, the frequncy for the second row down and the first row across are combined into a multi-frequency and sent.
