How does RTTY work?
The continued discussion in our community
about Digital Modes got me thinking about
what a Digital Mode actually is. At the most
fundamental level, it's about encoding
information into discrete chunks to exchange
information. Morse Code is an example of a
Digital Mode, made up from combinations of
dits and dahs.
This week I look at how RTTY works.
