Best Way to Keep Up with Amateur TV  Time owned: more than 12 months
Amateurs curious about ATV will not be disappointed with this magazine. If you're an experienced ATV'er, and haven't seen the magazine for a while, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the quality of ATV Quarterly under publishers/editors WB8ELK and WA6SVT. The editors combine technical articles with articles on how ATV is used in ARES and public safety. Recent articles covered digital HD ATV, ATV repeaters, ATV used with high-altitude balloon experiments, and ATV used in search and rescue. All this in a publication printed in full color and on glossy heavy stock. If you want to keep up with amateur TV, you'll want to be a subscriber.

Essential ATV Info  Time owned: more than 12 months
I really enjoy reading every issue of Amateur TeleVision Quarterly (ATVQ) I receive. I even save them for reference. (Back issues are available on CD ROM.) Information has been published on building Interdigital filters for ATV, Software for SSTV, ATV repeater design and operation, frequency rights of ATV operators, ATV Balloon launches, and many more. No other source has this vital information. The authors are very knowledgable and we frequently get international ATV articles and stories. All the vendors are directly related to the ATV hobby which alone is a great resource for parts and information. A must read for the technical inovator or mildly curios HAM.

First and accurate  Time owned: more than 12 months
ATVQ is the reincarnation of several past ham TV magazines all of which share one thing in common, they were the FIRST to announce and promote new technology. When SSTV started, when Packet was allowed, when ATV repeaters first went on the air, when Satellite TV started, when Digital TV began they were all detailed in the pages of ATVQ and it predecessors often months and years before any other ham magazine. Its material is even used by major broadcast equipment manufacturers for teaching principles of television and RF. It may seem expensive, but it well worth the price for accurate, cutting edge information without the 6SN7 and 2N35 page fillers of other rags. If your interest is CW and old tubes, read QST, if its contesting, read CQ, if you are into public service read World Radio, but if its current and future technology, read ATVQ. With the demise of Ham Radio magazine many years ago, its the only techonology magazine left. Hey, send them an article if you think you are up to their standards! For example, a recent article completely explains why coax is 50 or 75 ohms, and why those choices were made.

a good, honest effort  Time owned: more than 12 months
Considering that it publishes to a specialized part of ham radio (fast-scan TV) this magazine does a good job. I say 'honest' because I know of no other magazine which would publish a columnist's/competitor's negative comments about a piece of equipment-- in the same issue with a full page color ad for the same item [July, 1989: W6ORG vs. the AEA FSTV-430; Tom is still with us; AEA isn't.]
It is easily my most expensive ham magazine, but it gives hams like me, in an city of zero FSTV activity, a chance to keep up with what's going on in areas more blessed with ATV interest.
Point-to-point FSTV is easy to do and a lot of fun. Involve a repeater and it becomes too technical for neophytes like me to comprehend. So I enjoy the non-schematic articles more.
