W0YK Talks RTTY

On Wednesday, January 13, 2021, Ed Muns, W0YK, a noted RTTY contester, gave a great presentation via Zoom to ARROW. Below are just the three first slides, which Ed used to give us a feel for the history of RTTY and its current place in ham radio. He went on to explain how RTTY works, how to set your station up to run RTTY, and how to operate RTTY in contests. For more information, download the entire presentation.

Who knew that teletypes were in use before 1850?

Although the popularity of FT8 continues to increase, RTTY continues to hold its own, especially among contesters.

Looking for an exam session?

Unfortunately, ARROW will not be holding in-person exam sessions for the foreseeable future. Don’t despair, though, you can take the test online. To schedule an online, amateur radio exam go to https://hamstudy.org/sessions.
