ATV - Fast-Scan Amateur Television

Introduction

Amateur Television is a great way to combine ham radio with other hobbies, such as RC model airplanes and model rocketry.  Amateur Radio can be used to send video from a remote camera back to the operator over long distances, provided the path is line of sight. For information on other ways to work with images over radio, check the Image Modes page.
