There are different types of TTY sounds. WINS's SFX consists of a pair of Model 15's running simultaneously; in the 1970's and early '80's, it sounded like WCBS Newsradio 88's background teletype sound was emanating from Model 28's. As for what's used by, say, KYW in Philadelphia, it sounds almost like a Model 14TP processed through a phone line. Almost all set at 368 OPM (a.k.a. "60 speed"). No two TTY machines necessarily sounded alike.

Me, I appreciate 'em all . . .
