Receiving Traffic as a Radiogram

Post date: Feb 21, 2016 6:38:03 PM

A critical feature of the National Traffic System is fidelity of the message: that message received is exactly the same as the message sent. How can this be done, especially as a message is relayed from operator to operator until it arrives at its destination? We write the message as we receive it, of course! And we write it to a radiogram.

The radiogram form is helpful not only for originating traffic in the first place, but also for relay stations who receive the traffic and relay it to others, as well as for the station that ultimately receives the traffic—especially to deliver the message by hand.

In this short video we show how to take traffic from a net and put it into the form of a radiogram.
