Hi,

What do I need (instructions and equipment) to get started with RTTY? Equipment is a Kenwood TS 590, windows 8 laptop.


Thanks

Jeff

Jeff,

There are many ways to go about it.

I recommend that you join the "Kenwood TS-590" Yahoo group and post your question there.

You'll get the best-informed detailed responses.

The first thing to do is to go to this webpage:

http://www.aa5au.com/rtty.html

While Don focuses on MMTTY ( a great program) most of what is on his page is applicable to all RTTY programs.
And he discusses interfaces, the differences between AFSK and FSK, Trouble shooting and more.

Try here:

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/wadei/TS-590S_HOWTO_digital_quickstart_v1.4.pdf

If you use "audio FSK" (see AA5AU's website), RTTY is "just another soundcard mode".  That makes things _really_ simple:

. . . All you need is software, and a USB cable from the TS-590S to your PC.
