CQ-TV 256 download problem

Post by VK5YYY » Fri Jul 07, 2017 2:16 am

Hi CQ-TV postmaster,

Tried downloading CQ-TV 256 from the link in the email, but it didn't get to the downloading stage....blocked or not working maybe
Then I went to the Website and tried there, it said I had already downloaded and to use the emailed link
I can download the previous edition from Website ok
Anyway hope this can be sorted out or someone could email me a copy

Cheers Roger VK5YYY

I am having the same problem. Clicking the link in the email produces the following error message:

Error, unable to download CQ-TV, you may only download once from each link.
To download again, please click on the link in your email.

Please Contact Us for further information quoting reference: 1499408808

Logging on to the main site then going to
https://www.batc.org.uk/members/cqtv.php
and clicking the link there produces a completely blank page with URL
https://www.batc.org.uk/members/cqtv.php?issue=256
There is no sign of my browser (Firefox) conducting any sort of communication with the server.

I can successfully download previous issues from the main Download page, so it seems the problem is just with the download file.
I wonder if the file is in the correct file format?

Yes - there is a problem and the committee are aware.

Please standby whilst it gets sorted.

As Rob said there is a problem caused by an upgrade to the Adobe software that CQ-TV is produced on - we will post on this topic when it is fixed - in the meantime please do not email us!

OK problem sorted by going back to Adobe version 1.4.

The download link in your email should now work correctly.
