ITTY stands for
Internet Teletype. With today's
streaming audio over the Internet, George, W7TTY
has come up with a scheme that allows him to
broadcast teletype news over the Internet 24
hours per day, 7 days per week.
So what's different about ITTY? Well, for one
thing, the user community is able to submit
material to the transmit queue using simple
E-Mail (SMTP protocol). News broadcasts are now
possible from every point in the world.
This teletype feed contains
news feeds about the Military, Politics and National news.
It was created to offload these topics from the ITTY news feed
which is targeting the general public with a variety of
different subject matters.
Folks that contribute to this
feed and read the articles should be aware that the content may
not always be politically correct or agreed to by all.
Give it a grain of salt and see
if there is anything that interest you.
ITTY AutoStart is another version of ITTY, but it targets those
users that do not want the 24/7 broadcast feed and only want to
read mail from other users, similar to your email you get today.
Most users have configured their mechanical
teletype machines to power up when receiving a broadcast and the
power down after the message is delivered. Teletype
machines are mechanical devices and print directly to paper, so
a large feed of continuous messages similar to ITTY would
overwhelm them very quickly.
