CQ TV 254 & 255 Confusion

Post by keng8vdp » Wed Mar 22, 2017 10:14 am

hello,

Today I looked on my PC in my CQ-TV folder.
I noticed CQ TV 254 was missing so I looked through old emails and found the link.
I found it here >> . CQ-TV 254 is available for download here.

However when I go to download it , it shows as " you have chosen to download cq-tv255.pdf "
There seems no way I can find 254 , or get to it. Can anyone help ...Please ?
Did anyone get their CQ TV 254 I wonder ?

OR .. IS IT ME DOING SOMETHING WRONG ? ( AS USUAL ! )

This also brings me to the BATC Archive question. Why is the archive ONLY up to 2012 ?
Surely any CQ-TV older than this months should be in the Archive, or am I wrong ?

Many thanks for the magazine { smile } Ken G8VDP

Hi,

My link, received on Dec. 30th, is linking to edition 254 and downloading works fine....

And I was able also to download the editions before (248- 253)....

Hi Ken,

I tried your link just before it was removed and it downloaded your copy of 254.

Ken

I edited your post as it had your personal download link (it puts a watermark on page 3)

If you log in to batc.org, all the most recent copies are available under the left menu item "download CQ-TV".

Early editions are avaiable here http://www.batc.org.uk/cq-tv/archive/index.html

But don't get too familiar with this arrangement as it is all about to change with the new website :-)

Very strange; I definitely got your copy of 254.

Best get a copy from the archive as per Noel's post.

Hi Ken

You are not "page blind" but forum post blind!

I said "If you log in to batc.org" which you clearly have not as the 2nd item is "member's login".

Re your 2nd post - that is because the link we send you is always the same and for the latest version which was updated last night.

Go on Noel.. Laugh. You've got to or you would cry.

I would assume that because I was able to post on forum, I was logged in. Apparently not.
Ee by gum, I learn something every day. Even though sometimes it needs to be knocked into my head with a sledge hammer.

Thank You
