In the context of this discussion I think RTTY is an "in between" mode.
Decoding is done with a computer (or in the radio if you have a K3) but I've
never seen a decode on a signal that I couldn't hear or see on the spectrum
display. As a non-contest DX chaser, I find that it often takes considerable
operator skill to work other than common DX stations, particularly in split
pileups on RTTY. IMHO, working RTTY is sometimes more difficult than CW and
there is certainly less DXpedition activity.

Because I use my human skill that I developed over years to decode the CW signal. You don't do that for RTTY. Unless of course you're referring to using a CW decoder wherein you just read the decoded CW. You REALLY don't want to know what I fell about people that do that and say they "work CW".....

It is no more difficult to make a computer-controlled CW or RTTY QSO than a JT65 one..just try it if you don’t believe me. * * 73 Jay NY2NY*_________________ Topband Reflector Archives - http://www.contesting.com/_topband
