    I have used RTTY on and off, mostly off in favor of the other digital modes like PSK, FT8 etc.

    But, I have just started to play around with MMTTY software, setting it up and using it to contact all the "AM70" stations currently on the air.

    I think its pretty cool and like I said, I'm starting get the program to work as I like it, hot buttons, canned msgs, font types, sizes and color.

    Running about 1.5kw on 20 meters and I think its a blast.

    So, is there a RTTY forum?

    And if there isn't one, perhaps we need one to get others interested in it so this historic mode doesn't die a slow death.

    I believe the working different modes forum is the most appropriate one.

    There is no RTTY forum here on The Zed.
    But RTTY is a long way from "dying a slow death".

    RTTY seems to mostly be a contest mode now. It used to be a go-to for DX, but FT8 et al have supplanted it. We will see what FT4 does to the contest side of the mode.

    I run soundcard RTTY, but to me the real excitement is running it true FSK via hardware modems, complete with dancing X-Y tuning scopes. The only thing I haven't done is gone full teletype machine.
