What’s a Telex?

Little Car (11.01.2020)

What if I told you we had the ability to text each other in 1933. What?!? Well, before the advent of texting and even before faxing (I’m sure some of you young people are now wondering what a fax was), there was the Telex, which stood for “Telegraph Exchange”. It’s a now long-forgotten technology used mainly by businesses to transmit short messages to each other, kinda like texting, but attached to telephone wires using devices you definitely couldn’t put in your pocket.

One of the few remaining networks today is “I-Telex” which is run by over 100 enthusiasts to maintain this technology. Some of their equipment is shown in this video. If you want to find out more, go to https://www.i-telex.net/.
