Golay Transmission over Radio. A system developed by engineers at Kantronics, Inc. Users of this system include Military (Irish Air Corp, Irish Navy, Mexican Army), governmental agencies (ICRC) and the Albanian Christian Network (ACN).

G-tor's "claimed" main advantage is speed - up to 4x faster than pactor. It also incorporates a data interleaving system that assists in minimizing the effects of atmospheric noise and has the ability to fix garbled data. G-tor tries to perform all transmissions at 300bd but drops to 200bd if difficulties are encountered and finally to 100 bd. All acknowledgments (ACK's and NAK's) are sent at 100 bd.
