I am looking for a ringtone which was ubiquitous in Germany in the 1980-ies. When telephones were still attached to wires.

It is very hard to describe a ringtone. After 20 years or so I found the sound in an episode of "Der Alte". (Episode 94)

This is the fragment, but unfortunately the ringtone is not clear, the sound is in the backgroudn while people are talking. http://linxtech.net/links/post_klingelton_1985.mp3

I would love so much to find a recording of this tone.

Also I was wondering if I should post this in the German Language StackExchange. After all, this is a question which mostly Germans are likely to answer.
