Abstract:

Approximately 300 hours of radio teletype data were analyzed in a manner similar to an analysis performed for telephone channels to determine the applicability of coding theory to radio teletype channels. The results indicate that while correcting codes are impractical for improving the reliability of a teletype channel, error detect and repeat schemes with about 10 redundancy will reduce the probability of error to a negligible amount.
