Response to Re: Does anyone remember the old TTY machines?

I had an opportunity to operate such a machine for a short period of time. It was used for sending network broadcast schedules to the Virgin Islands. Typing out the tape took a while as I recall it had a peculiar format and then you would load it and "blast out a message" faster than I could type it at that time.
