I have the paper copies of ' The Slow Scan Companion' and 'The best of CQ-TV' (1986) which are in good condition and could be scanned. If anyone can scan them and you need to borrow them I aim to be at Newark on Friday and could bring them.

They are all paper and would require scanning unless somebody has electronic versions
Thanks for the offer but we do have them and all that's missing is the time / volunteers to upload them!
Similarly the index on the wiki needs completing - https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Index_of_articles - and each issue header linking back to the download copy in the archive....
Ok I think that's the last of the books that has dropped through Ian's letter box for scanning. Pleased to see that so many of you still have this 80's memorabilia. The effort that the people put into both designing the hardware, drafting and technical descriptions, to say nothing of the compiling and proof reading, was not wasted.
Interesting to read in the best of CQ-TV that our numbers were up at 2500 back then. CQ-DATV downloads per issue vary but several issues have passed the 10,000 mark. So we must be doing something right in producing an electronic magazine and distributing it free...This must be the formula for the future of ATV.
We will get your books returned in the next few days and once again thank you and enjoy your reading at https://www.cq-datv.mobi/ebooks.php
