As mentioned, you have to specify the COM port.

I assume you mean at the calling end.
There are some tricks with a voice modem, but they would be beyond what
you are probably prepared to do.
Some modems and phone gadgets might do this, I don't know.
You can have the operator hit a button or key. You can have it timeout
as in the script I suggested. The problem with that is that you will
have a click and a sudden increase in volume for both ends and this
might come at an awkward time. You might leave it off-hook during the
entire conversation and then then hang up if the operator has to click
something after a call anyway. You might have to be creative.
Don't forget to hang up as well as close.
