To give you a sense of our RTTY operations, here’s a fun video I (N7SMI) filmed of a typical RTTY pileup.
I used two MMTTY decoders and one or two 2Tone decoders with varying settings for decoding in N1MM. The K3S RTTY dual-tone filter was enabled once a signal was tuned. You’ll also notice that the RF gain is turned down to help decoding of the stronger signals in the pileup. Because so many people would call exactly on the same frequency as the previous caller, I very rarely worked two stations on the same frequency in a row. Those who listened and figured out my very regular and predictable pattern got in the log quickly while everyone else either called blindly or called where I had just been listening.
