At the begining it was... RTTY

RTTY The EURAO Party of this season is devoted to the oldest digital mode of ham radio: RTTY (Radioteletype).

It's a good excuse to find out what these concepts mean: teletype, perforated tape, 5-bit baudot code, 45,45 bauds speed, mark/space, modems, 2.125/2.295Hz, 170Hz shift, FSK, AFSK, etc, and why RYRYRY is the best for tuning.

But nowadays everything is software, so it's time to find the most appropriate program to do RTTY with a soundcard, maybe with an interface which manages PTT, isolates audio input and output, etc.

Also it's an opportunity to learn where RTTY stations are in our bands, having a look to the recommended frequencies of the current Party.

So, let's do RTTY, have fun and good luck with your DX!
