WWW.RTTY.COM History Hall
History Hall presently features five pieces. The first two were submitted to the world by Jim Haynes, W6JVE, while he was at the University of California, Santa Cruz. We have re-formatted them a bit for easier reading, but the documents are as original, with abstracts.
Added in September, 2000, is our presentation of a complimentary booklet presented by The Teletype Corporation commemorating their 50th Anniversary. Currently we have the original presented in thumbnails, .gif, and .jpg format. An HTML version is being prepared. Please enjoy The Teletype Story
Our fifth feature
is a letter from Forrest "Bart" Bartlett, W6OWP.
A Brief Biography of ALAN HOBBS G8GOJ -- Alan developed his lifelong passion for electro-mechanical teleprinters at a very early age due to spending much of his school holidays in "Telegraph House", the main factory of Creed & Co at East Croydon, from the early 1950’s to the early 1960’s.
Contributions to History Hall are encouraged and solicited. If you have some interesting bit of RTTY History you would like to share, please send it via e-mail or USPS and we will feature it in History Hall. We are currently looking for anecdotes and information on Irv Hoff, W6FFC, Bob Weitbrecht, W6NRM, Boyd Phelps, W0BP, and Byron Kretzman, W2JTP.
Any and all contributions are welcome.
