Hi you all!As I own since some weeks a Drake line C and I have an old KAM from Kantronics, I wonder if I would use it to operate RTTY with line C.Has anybody experience interfacing Kam and Drake?Many thanks in advance!Giorgio

No reason that it shouldn't work. It's just audio in and audio out plus PTT. You may need to use a relay between the KAM's PTT output and the Drake in order to handle the voltage.

Tube rigs were used on RTTY all the time.

I used my C-line with an Apple II and Hal ST-6 in the early '80s as my first digital RTTY station and it worked great.  Wrote an article for 73 magazine describing it all.  Contact me offline if you'd like a copy.  Not an exact fit for the KAM but may give you some interface ideas as the last poster mentioned.
