Allan you are right, transmitting RTTY with the Pro III TX memories alone
is tedious at best ,I think those memories would be better used as quick
send memories in conjunction with MMTTY on a PC, connected to the Pro III.
MMTTY and the 756 Pro III & II work wonderfully together. The site Bill
recommended is full of everything you need to know to connect your rig to
the PC and best of all you don't need a costly rigblaster to do it. For a
couple of dollars and abt 20 minutes you can have excellent RTTY keying
via the com port, and a very flexible PTT system from the same com port.
for 2 NPN's and 2 1Kohm resistors...works as good or better than my
ex-Rigblaster Plus's keying system.
Read the whole site, it's full of great information!

You sure have the right rig to have fun with RTTY!!
