Past Programs of note:
Astronomy: Between October 2003 to December 2007 Gary, VK 3 KHB re-broadcast to anyone watching ATV ~10pm till 11pm live the Astronomical Society of Victoria club station 'VK 3 EKH Astronomy Talk' spoken by Russell on the HF band at 3.543Mhz LSB and during that talk Gary tried to find appropriate images or video to play from Gary's collection of CSIRO, ESA / NASA short films and images... feedback from viewers was fair to impressive presentations.
Today the Talk is still held live on 3.543Mhz LSB most Friday nights by Clint Jeffrey and others. Clint also simulcasts when posible his broadcasts on VK 3 RTV 2 by a web-camera from his Narre Warren South studio / shack watching him reading out the various interesting articles. It takes a lot of effort to do both, live reading and popping up images... Remember we are one person TV stations.
Types of images seen will be of shack, family, backyard, local neighbourhood and home movies. Most of the time you see testing of camera, modulation or reproduction of picture information and other times a general chit chat and the TV Audio is not always present, as the conversation may be on another or several frequencies. Usually on 147.4Mhz FM but can be anywhere in the amateur radio bands. Also beware some TV stations don't have TV sound signal, just lots of noise "shusssh" where the sound should be. Stations can be active at any time and there is usually something after 8pm most nights.
VK3BFG home movies of aircraft, from "spitfire across Australia" to the local community "model plane" meetings and aircraft related material.
