The CQ-TV magazine is published 4 times a year in both .pdf format and as a printed magazine.  All members receive a link to down load the .pdf version and those who subscribe to printed version also receive a printed copy sent via surface mail to their home address.  Previous issues up to 2 years old are available for download in the members area.

CQ-TV is largely technical in content, and includes many articles, circuits and projects dealing with all aspects of television at technical levels from the very simple to the advanced.

Also included are equipment reviews and activity columns, overseas interest, in fact anything which is new and interesting to television amateurs.

Each magazine also carries details of printed circuit boards, special components and sundries which are generally made available in the BATC shop at cost plus prices to members.
