Amateur Television Quarterly

Amateur Television Quarterly (ATVQ) was a one-of-a-kind publication for hams who are interested in

sending and receiving their own television signals. Amateur Television (ATV) is a lot of fun!

Have you heard about using ATV while hang gliding, hot air ballooning, or for public service events?

How about ATV in the payload of a helium balloon at a hundred thousand feet, sending video showing

the earth's curvature?

For a little history behind ATVQ and the Amateur Television publications that preceeded it, we have provided a link to an article by Henry Ruh (KB9FO) that appeared in the April 1991, Vol. 4 #2 issue of Amateur Television Quarterly.
