Following is a section on Frequency Modulated Amateur Television.

1990's, and a couple in 'QST' back in the 1970's.
on Commercial FM TV Standards as Applied to Amateur Operations'
which appeared in ATVQ - Winter 1994 and
Your FM TV Receiver to Measure Video Deviation' which
appeared in ATVQ - Spring 1994.
- Also, here is a letter
Video Preemphasis and Deviation Calibration' which I had
written to Bill Parker (W8DMR) concerning an article of his which was
published in ATVQ - Fall 1998.
- 'Low Frequency Test Tone FM TV Deviation Calibration' and a note on intermodulation.

an article on using spent shotgun shells for plug-in coil forms.
- Another 'QST' article, in the February 1977 issue, is 'Inexpensive
Traps for Wire Antennas'. This article describes a pioneering use of
coaxal cable in place of high voltage capacitors. This article has been a
reference in the 'ARRL Antenna Book' for many years.
