RTTY Roundup

Just wondering how many used Flex equipment in the recent RU.

I used my 6600, PGXL, TGXL and AGXL for 24 hours total. Running SO2R at about 900-1000 watts per band. Everything worked flawlessly. So good, that after the first 12 hours I was hesitant to shut things down before taking a 6 hour break. So I put the amp in standby, left everything else on, and went to bed! Picked back up in the morning and went for another 12 hours. This is the first RU in which I was able to use all the XL pieces together.

    I used my 6400 in the RTTY roundup and it did a great job.

    Hi Ian. I am trying to get RTTY working with the same set up as you just mentioned and wonder if we can take a configuration discussion off-line? I attempted to email you at your QRZ address but my message is bouncing back. My address is good on QRZ.

    Thanks,

    Randy

    Noisy for sure ... but still working since 1965

    W7NGA -

    Wow, that brings back a few memories! Glad it is all still working. I regret it now but I threw away my Model 15, a Model 14 typing reperf, and a TD unit years ago and went the computer route. Rig back then was a Central Electronics 200V and a 75S-3, TU was a homebrew "Mainline TTL" by Irv Hoff.
