I just dove into my first experience running RTTY through my FLEX 6600M. I haven't done RTTY since we ran teletype machines at W4ODR, the club station at the Naval Air Station in Millington, TN. That was back in 1973!

Running a combination of the 6600M, N3FJP's CQ WW DX RTTY contest log, and Fldigi, it was a pleasure! The radio performed flawlessly with everything communicating like a charm. I wish I could say the same about myself but hey, you have to start somewhere.

The radio never wavered. Great job FLEX!

I too had a very pleasant experience with Flex 6600M and N1MM+ in CQ WW RTTY this past weekend.  Very tight integration with PC and N1MM and MMTTY.  I use SmartSDR so that I can have panadapters on one of my three large monitors.  Spots from N1MM displayed on panadapters make it easy to point and click on needed stations and mults.  Duel CQ in SO2R FDX mode worked great too.

Glad to hear it Dave. The 6600M here is running well with just about everything and anything I throw at it. Phone and digital modes both seem right at home. I just started with the diversity reception - interesting tool that I need to investigate more thoroughly. Good luck!
