Intro to Hellschreiber. What was Old is made New again…. What is Hellschreiber?. A method of fax-like teleprinting. A “fuzzy” mode which uses the brain as part of the decoding process. A “live” person-to-person QSO mode
What was Old is made New again…
• For “fuzzy” modes, the human brain is an integral part of the decoding.
• Morse is a fuzzy mode, as is FAX and SSTV.
• A Hellschreiber transmission is literally read off of paper tape or a video screen.
• The brain does pattern recognition and QRM/N rejection when receiving Hell.
