New submission from Pascal Bach <pascal.bach at nextrem.ch>:

This encoding is used in the GSM standard it is a 7-bit encoding similar
to ASCII. 
The encoding definition is found in:
Short Message Service Centre EMI - UCP Interface 4.6 Specification (p. 79)
as well as in: 
[3GPP 23.038] 3GPP TS 23.038 Alphabets and language-specific information.

I think this encoding would be useful for other GSM specific use cases.
