Paper Copies of Back-issues of CQ-TV

Post by G8GKQ » Mon Jul 01, 2024 4:06 pm

The club currently holds over five hundred paper copies of back issues of CQ-TV. Issues prior to CQ-TV 241 (September 2013) do not contain much of current relevance and the Committee have decided to dispose of them to reduce the amount of storage space needed.

All CQ-TVs from Issue 1 (October 1949) until the present day are available on the BATC Website, so no information is being lost; additionally, the BATC Archivist Brian G8GQS holds paper copies of all issues that are available.

The plan is that all magazines in the series 100 - 240 are being offered, on an availability basis, to any members who want them. Not all issues are available, and there are none before Issue 100. If you have a particular request, please e-mail me ( ) with details of the Issue number(s) and I will check availability. If in stock, I will ask you to make a specific online donation to the BATC (through the shop) to cover postage and packing costs and send you the issues.

I will bring all the remaining issues to CAT 24 in August for attendees to take away at no cost. Those that remain at the end of the day will go to recycling.

Issues from CQ-TV 241 onwards are available for purchase from the BATC shop; they will also be used as publicity material at rallies and events.

Dave, G8GKQ
