The following text is a logging from the Syrian News Agency (SNA) in Damascus, Syria. Initially, it was "heard" as digital pulses through my receiver, and was then "decoded" using a computer program to demodulate Radio Teletype. The news information is much like what AP or UPI would transmit over wire, but this transmission was broadcast through the air. It was monitored from Long Island, NY, USA on Mar. 22, 1996; using a Drake R-8 receiver and AEAFaxIII software on a laptop computer.
