Does anyone else miss the chatter of 5 or 6 teletypes running broadcast and broadcast overflow with speakers hooked up to a task group orderwire blasting EI's from a kw-7?

I also worked on TTYs for years. It's hard to forget how many times I wanted to use an emergency sledge on them. Or do a deep sea test.

Never got to see this movie as I was always 'out' somewhere at that time, never near a movie theater. I'll have to check it out sometime and thanks for posting.

There's nothing like 2 or three of these going along with 15 other TTY printers receiving traffic from everywhere around the world. LOL

Thanks for video. I was a RM TTY repairman and CW operator in the Navy from 1972-1992. I worked on many Model 28 ASR and KSR teletypes. Tom K4NAM FL
